This happens very often. Someone new user always enters an axiom commmad in a comment with no preceeding text. Then a bug in MathAction causes the command to not be recognized as a command.

Bug fixed --Bill Page, Fri, 04 Mar 2005 13:30:41 -0600 reply
I modified the regular expressions that scripts ReplaceInlineAxiom?.py and ReplaceInlineReduce?.py use to search for commands embedded in the text. The previous version used a negative look-behind for the ! escape character in combination the start of string ^ character. This test failed if there was no character preceeding the first \begin{axiom} or \begin{reduce}. I simply removed the start of line requirement. As a result \begin it is also now possible to indent equations properly in structured text.

  • See SandBox for an example of the use of such indentation.
  • Comments that start with commands should now also work.
  • Let me know if this causes any unexpected behaviour.
  • I am monitoring SandBox and a few other pages to see what sort of problems new users have when then experiment with entering commands. I think/hope that the web site is getting a little easier to understand for the novice.
