# Backticks breaking MathJax in comments

The backticks that were used to circumvent MathJax problems on MO 1.0 were removed in questions and answers.

However, it appears that the comments were not affected by this fix and thus display MathJax as code, see for instance here, here or here.

Would it be possible to remove those backticks that were used on MO 1.0 to fix rendering issues?

• Thanks for pointing that out. I think the construct should be \$... \$ in order to disambiguate the displayed math environment from an escaped opening bracket. Doing this, the preview looks fine. – Martin Jul 2 '13 at 14:28
