# post only in ascii

I have a plain ascii text that I would like to post by simple copy paste in math SE but my ascii text is interpreted differently. I would like to be able to ask my question in simple ascii, how shall I do it ?

• You're probably using symbols from Markup and MathJax. – Asaf Karagila Jun 19 '16 at 22:25
• Although it was intended for preparation of long posts requiring elaborate MathJax/$\LaTeX$ markup, you might be interested in trying out your post in the sandbox thread. – hardmath Jun 20 '16 at 2:27
• ASCII is a character mapping - I think you mean raw text – noɥʇʎԀʎzɐɹƆ Jun 21 '16 at 22:47

This is rendered as is $x$ &ndash; nothing renders.
