I recently asked a question here on the main site. The $\LaTeX$ in one of the answers doesn't render. It isn't a problem with the syntax, it renders on the answerers browser(Firefox). Attached screenshot belowenter image description here

The poster attached a screenshot of his rendering so I could read, so the screenshot of the screenshot is also present, which can be read.

    $\begingroup$ The question renders fine for me on Chrome 33.0.1750.146 m (under Windows). $\endgroup$ Mar 13, 2014 at 12:26
  • $\begingroup$ I've deleted here the % at the end of \sum_{k=0}^{n}\binom{k}{1}+2\binom{k}{2} $$\begin{eqnarray*} S &:&=\sum_{k=1}^{n}k^{2}=\sum_{k=0}^{n}\binom{k}{1}+2\binom{k}{2} =\sum_{i=1}^{n}\binom{k}{1}+2\sum_{k=1}^{n}\binom{k}{2} \\ &=&\binom{n+1}{2}+2\binom{n+1}{3} \\ &=&\frac{n\left( n+1\right) \left( 2n+1\right) }{6}. \end{eqnarray*}$$ With that %it didn't render here in this comment box. $\endgroup$ Mar 13, 2014 at 12:27

  • $\begingroup$ @Sabyasachi It's a strange behaviour, because that % was at the end of a line. $\endgroup$ Mar 13, 2014 at 12:36

    $\begingroup$ Some browsers remove line breaks, and that appears to be what happened in Chrome, so the comment became the entire rest of the equation, and it didn't render. Had the line break been retained, you would have had a multi-line error box. $\endgroup$ Mar 13, 2014 at 23:38
