If you sprinkle some LaTex in your question text, when the question displays,

the LaTex sometimes overlaps the other text as if Webwork isn't giving

it enough horizontal space.

For example...

BEGIN_PGML

Create a function called sqrt_plus_four with one parameter

that returns the four more than the square root of the passed value.

So for the value 5, the returned result should be [`\sqrt{5} + 4`].

Use the sqrt method in the math module.

....etc.

At least in Firefox the LaTex piece overlaps the word that comes after

on Ubuntu Linux.

What display mode are you using? I assume it is MathJax. What version of MathJax do you have, and which renderer are you using? You can tell the version by using the MathJax contextual menu (right click on any typeset expression) and choose "About mathJax". You can tell what renderer you are using by using the MathJax menu and selecting Math Settings -> Math Renderer to see which one is checked.

If you are not using MathJax version 2.1, you should, as there are some bug fixes for this kind of problem in that version. If you update your version, be sure to clear your browser cache, and restart the browser, otherwise you may get portions of the older version of MathJax from the cache.

I am using a pre-ver 2.1 version of MathJax. I will upgrade. Hopefully that will fix the problem.

Thanks.
