# The \vec command appears broken in Windows XP

For example, when I write \vec{a}, I see (to be clear, the following is a screenshot):

$\hskip3in$

To facilitate comparison, here is \vec{a} compiled by the website: $$\vec{a}$$

I'm currently using Chrome 17.0.963.56 m on Windows XP SP3 (I'm using an old laptop today). I tested it out on my phone (!) and \vec works fine, though. But I figure enough people are still using XP that it's worth mentioning this issue.

• Font problem maybe? Refreshed cache? – Willie Wong Mar 5 '12 at 9:14
