This question already has an answer here:

Per the comment submitted with the edit: "Improved formatting." With the edited formatting, however, the title of this question appears with the unformatted syntax and, imho, looks worse:

enter image description here

Are there guidelines re: such formatting for this site?

I assume the internet looks the same for me as most all others, but is there a reason to use \$ \formatting $ as compared to the symbols I used in the original title and body?

enter image description here

I ask because I think the original implication symbol looks better not only in context (the $\implies$ from \$\implies$ compared to the original symbol used ⇒) when formatted, but also due to the unformatted results pictured above. I'd like to rollback the edit so I figured I would ask first here.

Of note, the title gets formatted properly in the list generated from a tag search:

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • $\begingroup$ Note that usually the title is compiled. That it is not in your screen-shot is a side-effect of you (I think) taking the screenshot of a search result. For the time being look a bit down on this list to see it formatted correctly math.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/logic $\endgroup$ – quid Apr 24 '17 at 18:14
  • $\begingroup$ @quid no, not a side effect, & of note, the questions title does appear with the proper formatting in a list of posts from a tag search (see edit). I know nothing of the mechanics of SE web pages which is part of why I asked if the accepted formatting with the edit (instead of symbols) is preferred on this site. Thanks. $\endgroup$ – Mr. Kennedy Apr 24 '17 at 18:18
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, what I meant to say is that mostly the new version of the title will be rendered correctly. It is just not rendered on your first screenshot as you took it from a search result I think; this is a corner case. I do understand that the post was edited and this would not happen for your original version. $\endgroup$ – quid Apr 24 '17 at 18:26
  • $\begingroup$ @quid if this would not happen for the original version, that seems like an argument in favor of rolling back the edit. Will check out the dup. $\endgroup$ – Mr. Kennedy Apr 24 '17 at 18:34

    $\begingroup$ Looking at questions tagged mathjax+unicode, these questions seem related: θ vs. $\theta$ - What is preferred? Unicode or MathJax? and Would HTML/Unicode formatting cause troubles? (Some of other posts linked there might be of interest, too.) $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Apr 24 '17 at 20:50
