This is hardly important, but ... In an answer, I used the LaTeX O(n \epsilon^{1-d}) to display $O(n \epsilon^{1-d})$, but this is what it looks like to me (in Chrome 64.0.3282.140 under MacOS 10.13.3):

Note the $\epsilon^{1-d}$ is pushed downward, likely by the line above. But the use of the same LaTeX in this post looks fine (to me).

Is this a MathJax / Chrome bug?

  • $\begingroup$ What MathJax renderer are you using? Does the display change if you switch to another one? $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 11, 2018 at 14:26
  • $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak: I don't know. How can I determine which MathJax renderer is installed? $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 11, 2018 at 14:39
  • $\begingroup$ You can change the renderer in the MathJax menu which you get by right clicking on any MathJax formula. $x^2+y^2=z^2$ The links I gave in the previous comment and in this one show a few screenshots. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 11, 2018 at 14:47
  • $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak: Thanks. I see I am using HTML-CSS. MathML is not supported natively in Chrome. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 11, 2018 at 14:53

Here is a combined screenshot of three browsers, from left to right: Firefox 58.0.2, Safari 11.0.3, Chrome 64.0.3282.140 (all on MacOS 10.13.3); only Chrome shows the misalignment:

In each case the MathJax renderer was HTML-CSS, so that does not seem to be the source of the difference.
