Hi all. Any reason why jsMath doesn't seem to interpret \emph{Hello World}?
…is nicely interpreted by jsMath, but for the \emph{regular} which is undigested.
Check http://www.cms.math.ca/10.4153/CJM-2009-064-9 and flip the Format: between jsMath and Latex to see what I mean.
Any clues would be helpful!

The reason is that jsMath only handles the mathematical macros from TeX, not the text macros. The idea is that jsMath is supposed to do the things that are hard in HTML (the mathematics) and let HTML do the things it's good at (like putting something in italics). JsMath was never intended to be a complete TeX implementation (and it isn't), and it does not process any text-mode macros.

Thanks Davide. That makes sense. Makes my life harder; but it makes sense.
