Comment 1 Roan Kattouw 2010-02-12 12:54:48 UTC
First of all, this happens with the old editor as well, so it's not a bug in the new editor.

Second, it's not a bug at all: ≈ is not a valid HTML entity, you were most likely looking for ≈
Comment 2 Calcey QA 2010-02-12 13:11:45 UTC
we refereed section TeX vs HTML for the formats. ≈ is given in the syntax section
Comment 3 Roan Kattouw 2010-02-12 13:18:41 UTC
Then that document is wrong. My browser (FF 3.5.7) refuses to display ≈ as a symbol even when included in a normal HTML page.
Comment 4 Derk-Jan Hartman 2010-02-12 13:24:39 UTC
approx is the LaTeX name for the same symbol. The editor got confused I guess. I have fixed this error in the meta page.
