Description Platonides 2012-07-26 18:36:33 UTC
Previously mentioned in bug 2458#c4

\acute{i} is not rendered as í, but as an acute accent over an 'i' with a dot.

Expected: í

This happens with both texvc and MathJaX.
Hopefully it's easier to fix it now in MathJax.
Comment 1 Frédéric Wang 2013-09-10 20:42:06 UTC
It works the same for me in latex (acute over an 'i'), although maybe not if you load babel or something. I think in modern environments like those based on MathML or xelatex/luatex, you just want to type the unicode character 'í'. (not sure that will render correctly in MathJax at the moment, although it will definitely work with native MathML)
Comment 2 Peter Krautzberger 2013-09-10 23:17:24 UTC
I think href="">this says</a> MathJax supports it. Is that correct? (BTW, not the MathJax fonts, but MathJax by combining a dotless i with an accent).

I tried to reproduce the correct output with pdflatex and got the same result as Frédéric.
I tried
and got the wrong result in the PDF.
Comment 4 Frédéric Wang 2014-01-03 16:21:50 UTC
The Open Type MATH table has a dtls feature for dotless forms, so this could  eventually be used for some Open Type math fonts and implemented in browsers. See for the CSS property.
