I noticed when viewing a question here that a hot network question from Money.SE was formatted strangely. Presumably because it's interpreting the title as math markup.

  • $\begingroup$ Indeed it looks that way. Money.SE probably does not use MathJax/LaTex, given the prevalence of the dollar sign there. It all depends on your point (or site) of view I guess... $\endgroup$ – Jon Custer Sep 13 '16 at 20:57
  • $\begingroup$ @JonCuster correct, to my knowledge they don't use the formatting there. $\endgroup$ – briantist Sep 13 '16 at 20:59

This is a known issue. As a workaround, you can install SOUP (Stack Overflow Unofficial Patch), which will prevent MathJax rendering in HNQ titles unless the site is known to have MathJax enabled.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks! I tried to search for this on meta and didn't find it. In any case, it's nowhere close to being enough o fan issue that I'd install a workaround; I just wanted to report it. $\endgroup$ – briantist Sep 14 '16 at 15:56

    $\begingroup$ OK, cool, and thanks. Though note that SOUP also fixes a lot of other little issues with the sites, so I'd recommend it to everyone. $\endgroup$ – David Z Sep 14 '16 at 16:13
  • $\begingroup$ Interesting, I hadn't heard of it before, I'll have a look. $\endgroup$ – briantist Sep 14 '16 at 16:33
