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

Description

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.

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)

I think href="https://github.com/mathjax/MathJax/blob/b7adf88beb589d75aa5e0e218bfc50a537478be1/unpacked/jax/output/HTML-CSS/fonts/STIX/General/Bold/Latin1Supplement.js#L101">this says</a> MathJax supports it. Is that correct? (BTW, not the MathJax fonts, but MathJax by combining a dotless i with an accent).

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 https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/font-feature-settings for the CSS property.
