Sorry, about not posting that information. WW1 seems like a long time ago. We're using WW2.1.
Unfortunately, I couldn't get your suggestion to work. Here's the
situation we're looking at. We have a multiple choice question and the
initial code is below:
# Make a new checkbox multiple choice
$tf = new_pop_up_select_list();
"No Solution" => "No Solution",
"Infinite Solutions" => "Infinite Solutions",
"Unique Solution" => "Unique Solution"]);
Changing the second entries by inserting a hbox or mathrm negatively affects what the student sees.
Changing the first entry causes an ugly display when Webwork checks whether the student's answer is correct.
Currently, the problem is that when Webwork checks the student's
answer, the entries showing up in the "Answer Preview" column are all
in upper-case, italics, which can be very hard to read. The "perfect"
solution would be for normal text to be printed in this column. For
this type of problem, we can control what the answers look like, so we
don't have to worry about a student entering in special TeX characters.
