Subject: Bug: LaTeX: inline maths expression in \textrm is not fully supported
Date: Sun, 13 Dec 2020 02:30:15 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87h7oq1oig.fsf@ens-lyon.fr> (raw)

Sometimes, we want to nest inline maths expression in \textrm to
handle spaces easily and avoid repetition.


1. $A = \{n : \textrm{$n$ odd in $X$}\}$
2. $A = \{n : \textrm{\(n\) odd in \(X\)}\}$
3. \(A = \{n : \textrm{\(n\) odd in \(X\)}\}\)
4. \(A = \{n : \textrm{$n$ odd in $X$}\}\)

are all equivalent to 

- $A = \{n : n \textrm{ odd  in } X}\}$

But Org mode exports them in LaTeX as 

\item \$A = $\backslash${n : \textrm{$n$ odd in $X$}$\backslash$}\$
\item \(A = \{n : \textrm{\(n\) odd in \(X\)}\}\)
\item \(A = \{n : \textrm{\(n\) odd in \(X\)\}$\backslash$}$\backslash$)
\item \(A = \{n : \textrm{$n$ odd in $X$}\}\)

Namely, only cases 2. and 4., where nested maths delimiters are different
than the outer-most maths delimiters, are correctly exported.
On the other hand, Cases 1. and 3. introduced extra $\backslash$.

Interestingly, display style maths expressions are correctly exported.

5. $$A = \{n : \textrm{$n$ odd in $X$}\}$$
6. $$A = \{n : \textrm{\(n\) odd in \(X\)}\}$$
7. \[A = \{n : \textrm{\(n\) odd in \(X\)}\}\]
8. \[A = \{n : \textrm{$n$ odd in $X$}\}\]

exports to

\item $$A = \{n : \textrm{$n$ odd in $X$}\}$$
\item $$A = \{n : \textrm{\(n\) odd in \(X\)}\}$$
\item \[A = \{n : \textrm{\(n\) odd in \(X\)}\}\]
\item \[A = \{n : \textrm{$n$ odd in $X$}\}\]

without extra $\backslash$.
