Description Christopher Yeleighton 2008-06-13 19:47:23 UTC
The rule 

span.texhtml { font-family: serif; }

should become

span.texhtml { font-family: Cambria, serif; }

The reason is that Cambria is able to display the combination "Latin lowercase a with dot above" whereas Times New Roman is not because it does not contain the glyph for "combining dot above".  This is a Microsoft problem, of course and as always.

Note that Cambria does not extend Times New Roman because it does not conain the Hebrew alphabet; therefore this rule cannot be universal.  It is, however, very reasonable to apply it to formulae.

Note also that "Cambria Math" contains several mathematical symbols which Cambria does not contain; I do not recommend prescribing it though because it does not include an italic shape.
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2008-06-15 18:48:53 UTC
<math>\dot a</math> produces a PNG under all settings I try, never HTML, so the stated use case appears to be irrelevant.  If I'm mistaken, please reopen.
