I have a problem where the author included "#" directly in the problem statement. This works fine for display-mode. However, when hard-copy is produced, the LaTeX compiler chokes on the naked # character.
When I looked in PGbasicmacros.pl, I could not find a display macro for this character. Is this an omission or is there a different method to accomplish this?
(I'm assuming that it is an omission and can be rectified by mimicking what was done for the $DOLLAR display macro.)
Also, I noticed that this is a very hard thing to search for in the forum because "number" and "pound" show up in too many settings that did not apply (e.g., "compound"). So this may have been asked before and I couldn't find it.
