I made a slight edit to this answer, but then some of the maths (which I did not edit) wasn't displaying correctly, so I rolled back the edit. However, the sections that weren't displaying properly did not return to their original state.

Is it just me, or does the answer not display properly? If it doesn't display properly, why has my edit had this effect?

The problem was a number of extra backslashes. There were two instead of one for each \{ and triple instead of double at the ends of some lines \\. It all displays fine now.

This sometimes happens when using an outside editor. They sometimes quote backslashes this way.

    $\begingroup$ Ah, that was an old answer the OP touched, which was written at a time when backslash entry was hack-y. See this, among other old threads. $\endgroup$ Jun 8 '13 at 4:00
