now even shorter

June 14, 2009

As of today, the question mark has been removed from mathURLs, so they look like http://mathurl.com/5euwuy instead of http://mathurl.com/?5euwuy.

Even better is this: http://mathurl.com/5euwuy.png instead of http://mathurl.com/?img=5euwuy!

Of course, old-style mathURLs will continue to work.

Leave a note here if you notice any bugs.

    I found a bug: http://mathurl.com/n5e727

    As an example, “>” in a \text block returns an upside down question mark rather than “>.”

      Hi, that’s actually the normal behavior of LaTeX (which mathURL is based on).

      For example, try to compile the following on your own computer:
      \documentclass{article}
      \begin{document}
      n > 1
      \end{document}

      What you probably want instead is this: http://mathurl.com/neaxxb
