Description m_schnei 2006-04-25 13:11:47 UTC
When I write some definition, e.g. "f(x) := x^2", then the presentation of ":="
looks rather bad: The ":" is slanted like a "/". This is not the way, how it
should be written in mathematical work.

Maybe the parser of the formular editor does not recognize ":=" as a compound
Comment 1 michael.ruess 2006-04-25 14:00:26 UTC
As a workaround, put the colon into quotes like f(x) ":"= x^2. The colon won't
be interpreted as text now.

MRU->TL: wouldn't it be possible to interpret := as a mathematical expression
and not as two seperate characters?
