Incorrectly located line break after a minus sign
Closed, InvalidPublic


''k''(''x'') = −(''γ'' + ∇''f'')

The  s above are there for a reason. And a minus sign is not the same character as a hyphen. In a Wikipedia article I saw a line break just after this minus sign before the left parenthesis. Are there any standards by which that is not an incorrect way to write something?

The problem occurs in Wikipedia's article titled "Bailout embedding". See in particular this edit:

just after the words "with a choice of". As I altered the window geometry in Google Chrome, I could make the problem occur or not.

Hi @Michael_Hardy, thanks for taking the time to report this. Please add a more complete description to this report. This report lacks a clear list of specific steps to reproduce a problem, a link to a public website where the problem can be seen, and version information about your web browser(s).
You can edit the task description by clicking Edit Task.
Ideally, exact and clear steps to reproduce should allow any other person to follow these steps (without having to interpret those steps) and see the same results. Problems that others can reliably reproduce can get fixed faster.

I cannot reproduce any such problem in Firefox 68 in my sandbox on

Thanks. Still cannot reproduce in Firefox 68 on
But I can reproduce the problem in Chromium 75. Looks a bit similar to T132255.

Please file a bug report to the Chromium developers as it looks like this is a bug in their browser: and - thanks.

Closing this task as invalid as there is nothing to fix in code maintained by Wikimedia.
