# Improper auto line-break in quoted latex expression

I have this problem with Latex within quote.

For example, I want to show the following text in quote:

Let $(I, \leq)$ be an ordered index set, and let $(\Omega, \mathcal{F},\mathcal{F}_t, \mathbb{P})$ be a filtered probability space.

If I type the following text in edit box:

Let $(I, \leq)$ be an ordered index set, and let $(\Omega, \mathcal{F}, \mathcal{F}_t, \mathbb{P})$ be a filtered probability space.


and then quote it, the system will automatically break line in the middle of a Latex expression,

> Let $(I, \leq)$ be an ordered index
> set, and let $(\Omega, \mathcal{F}, > \mathcal{F}_t, \mathbb{P})$ be a
> filtered probability space.


resulting in an additional ">" in the middle of the latex expression $(\Omega, \mathcal{F},> \mathcal{F}_t, \mathbb{P})$:

Let $(I, \leq)$ be an ordered index set, and let $(\Omega, \mathcal{F}, > \mathcal{F}_t, \mathbb{P})$ be a filtered probability space.

I was wondering if there is any solution? Thanks!

• Why not just write the quotation character (">") yourself? You don't have to press the toolbar button. :-) – Rahul Feb 27 '11 at 7:06

The blockquote editor function isn't quite smart enough to understand MathJax $ and $$ syntax -- if you want to blockquote a section with, I suggest doing so manually, by making sure each line begins with >. I found that the problem can be solved by putting a > before the first line of the quote. Not necessarily to put it in front of every line. For example, Let$(I, \leq)$be an ordered index set, and let$(\Omega, \mathcal{F}, \mathcal{F}_t, \mathbb{P})$be a filtered probability space. Its code is > Let$(I, \leq)$be an ordered index set, and let$(\Omega, \mathcal{F},
