At the U of Hartford, we just went to 2.0. It seems like a nice improvement.

The square root symbol does not appear in jsmath mode.

The error is

"Missing or unrecognized delimiter for \left"

When you look at the source for the HTML, the line that should display the sign is


When I did the same thing for exp, it displayed correctly but the line that was like that was "\exp\left(2\right)" with () where true were.

I don't enough about it to know if that is the problem; it just didn't seem right.

This is actually a problem with the (in the pg/lib directory), which is what is producing this TeX. (If you look carefully, you will see that this TeX code is actually broken, and will procude errors in TeX as well).

I submitted a correction for this about a month ago. If you get the current version of from the CVS repository, that should take care of this for you.
