We used to ren­der the Re­lat­ed Ques­tions and the Hot Me­ta Ques­tion lists in Geor­gia so that they looked right when com­bined with Math­Jax. Now we don’t, and it looks... sub­op­ti­mal (i.e., weird, wrong, broken):

mathjax bad render demo 2

No­tice how that’s the wrong "2" in "2-el­e­ment" and the wrong "3" in "3 ques­tions". It’s al­so much too big a dig­it in both cas­es.

This looks even worse when more Math­Jax is in­volved:

mathjax bad render demo 3

That just doesn’t look good now; it looks like a mis­take. You shouldn’t be mix­ing sans and serif faces: that should all be set in serif like it used to be.

Drat! This ancient bug still isn’t fixed after five years now.

    $\begingroup$ Tangentially, the 3 should not be in MathJax at all. Likely it should not even be a symbol, but maybe that's a matter of taste. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @quid There is that. :) I’d’ve written it out as three myself. $\endgroup$
