texvc strips whitespace required to render certain macros
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Author: maxhawkins

Description:
Certain packages require whitespace to render correctly. Texvc strips all whitespace, so the macros don't render properly.

Example using the mhchem package:

If you enter:
<math>\ce{H+ + OH- <=>> H2O}</math>

Texvc passes it to TeX as:
\ce {H-+OH-<=>>H2O}

which gives the wrong output.

Maybe the solution is to allow exceptions for certain packages in the configuration file.

(In reply to comment #3)

How and where is \ce defined.

These commands are (probably) from the mhchem package, http://www.ctan.org/pkg/mhchem.

See also http://docs.mathjax.org/en/latest/tex.html#mhchem.

Just a quick update. There's a fix available at https://github.com/mathjax/MathJax/issues/377 which will be in the next MathJax release.
