Description sambo57u 2003-09-10 20:16:11 UTC
Certain expressions containing multiple sub and super scripts get messed out
when loaded with ppt --> oo conversion turned on (they are fine when loaded
as images). It looks like the one can have a perfect translation by adding more
curly brackets to the oo translation.

I am attaching a ppt file form one my students to show this problem. Please
look at the formulas on Slide 6 with and without translation turned on. ALso,
on slide 14 I am getting some empty boxes inserted into the formula whic I
have to delete by hand.

TL->CMC: It seems the attributes (e.g. the hat symbol) are misplaced
when the formulas in the ppt doc are converted to SO Math.
Please have a look.
