# LaTeX bug?

## Recommended Posts

This post was rendering fine when it was intially posted, but isn't any more.

The LaTeX in it all renders OK in other sites.

There appears to be a (newish) problem with hypography's LaTeX render.

Hmm....

$= \frac13 \sum_{x=1}^3 [\frac1x] = \frac{11}{18}$

There might be an error with the string, such as being cut off too soon. I'll have a look at it soon.

For now, can you rework the equation to mean the same thing, but structured differently?

Beginning the contents of a [math] element with "=" seems to have something to do with this "no query string" message. I moved the "="s to the ends of the previous contents, and it renders OK. If I knew a "\keyword" equivalent of "=", I suspect that would work as well.

The mystery, to me, is why it rendered OK on 1/30, but not now, and if there're other misrendered LaTeXs elsewhere? And what is the “query string” the error message mentions? :shrug:

If you check the image properties of those that render, you will note that the images address will read cgi-bin/mimetex.cgi?latex-equation-string. However for that particular query, it shows up as null, no "latex-equation-string". That is why I brought up the possibility that it is being ended prematurely.

Never mind, I figured out what I was doing wrong.
