    I encounter some non-rendered latex in Definition 1.7 (sections) and Example 1.8 (trivial bundle).
    Anyone else seeing this?

    [Edit:] In Definition 1.14. sub-para "1": Typo? ##dx^j## in 2nd line should be ##dx^i## ?

    Thanks. I fixed the indexing in Def. 1.14 now. I am not sure yet what is causing the two rendering issues. Will investigate...

    Some diagrams which work ok contain:

    \downarrow\substack{fb}

    But both the faulty ones have: \downarrow^\substack{fb}

    Thanks again. Yes, that's what triggers the problem. I have removed the "substack", and now it displays.

    But an issue remains. The use of "substack" here is a hack anyway. It replaces what in my source is "mathrlap" or "mathllap", neither of which seem to be supported here. If anyone has a suggestion, please let me know.

    It's offtopic a bit, because it's about technical things, but I'd suggest Greg should also admit collections of pdf's as Insights. Then it would be much easier to write Insights of such typographically challenging texts simply in LaTeX. The greatest obstacle writing Insights articles for me are these technical problems!

    I know what you mean. On the other hand, with the script that some kind soul has written for me (who prefers to remain anonymous), 99% of the technical problems have now gone away (for conversion from Instiki to Wordpress that is, but something analogous could be done for conversion from LaTeX to Wordress.) I am confident that the last remaining little issues as above will be sorted out.

    Found the solution! Turns out that the functionality of "mathrlap" and "mathllap" is supported here after all, but it needs to be called just as "rlap" and "llap".

    Now everything works! (Or so it seems, please let me know if you spot further issues.)
