Maybe I'm not using the right syntax, but I'm having problems with % signs. When you view problems with a % on the web, the % gets translated like normal. However, when you generate a hard copy the % gets turned into a Latex comment. If you use \% then the % is correct in the hard copy but is \% in the html.

Anyone know the correct solution to this (aside from using "percent" instead of "%")

See http://webwork.maa.org/wiki/Display_Macros for a full list of such symbols.

First error in TeX log is:

! Missing $ inserted.

$

l.110

I've inserted a begin-math/end-math symbol since I think

you left one out. Proceed, with fingers crossed.

My stop-gap remedy is \( 85 \)$PERCENT which produces a discernible change of fonts. [I have not tried a variant using PERCENT() because that would be even more awkward to type (and decipher when reading source-code).]

Hmmm

perhaps one can change the TeX version of $PERCENT so that it uses the tex \ensuremath command?

then it could be used inside math mode -- in fact it would always think it was in math mode

If some one can do some experimenting in TeX to find the most desirable behavior I can change $PERCENT's

TeX version to behave that way.
