Reporting against Babaco Release : r62243
Steps to Reproduce ::
1) Type ≈ and preview text
Please refer the screen print.
Should render the correct output.
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 ≈
we refereed http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Displaying_a_formula section TeX vs HTML for the formats. ≈ is given in the syntax section
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.
approx is the LaTeX name for the same symbol. The editor got confused I guess. I have fixed this error in the meta page.
Close the bug as per given comments
