In my answer to

When is the closed unit ball in a smaller Banach space closed in a larger Banach space?

I wrote the following:

> Edit: $Y=Z^*$ does not display correctly when it is in the body of the preceding paragraph. It seems to be because there are two \^ * symbols in the same paragraph. What is the work around? Adding single quotes does not completely fix the problem. >

I have not previously encountered this one.

    $\begingroup$ Using \ast instead of the symbol * should work (I did not try it though, as I was not sure what exactly would need to be changed). [Maybe some braces around the \ast are needed, as usual for 'longer' exponents, but I think in fact it should work without.] $\endgroup$ – user9072 Nov 23 '15 at 18:02
  • $\begingroup$ The root-cause might be the same as on this recent report meta.mathoverflow.net/questions/2596/… That is for some reason the 'escaping' of certain characters on MO, at least for the preview, is broken. Strangely it seems not broken on meta.MO. $\endgroup$ – user9072 Nov 23 '15 at 18:11

This had to do with the citation helper script - mostly with how I implemented the integration with the editor.

The fix is being deployed right now.
