Hi Helmut,

» THX, I didn’t know that!

NIST's Typefaces for Symbols in Scientific Manuscripts.

I was bored some years back when I was learning LaTeX so I read some typographic stuff and it seems that's the consensus...

» Are you happy with this? \(\small{C_{\textrm{max}}}\)

That's what I would write. But this is nothing comparing to the alignment of the numbers the journal made in those tables. :-D

Anyway, M$ Word is the only one I can use at work so I'm a bit numb about the format now. I used to be able to spot 2 consecutive space in a document immediately and always had to delete one; now I accept report with a small table in the middle of page occupying 1/3 page and another 1/3 on top and on bottom page are completely empty, never even mention the orphans and widows on many pages (though I haven't seen the latter much recently, maybe M$ change settings?)...

» I had to use \textrm{} since \textup{} is not supported in MathJax. :confused:
» Check: \(\small{C_{\textup{max}}}\)

Yes, it's not supported according to official documentation. But even for some of the "supported commands" I cannot use it here. e.g., \LaTeX{} and \TeX{} are supported and they should output their typographic symbols, respectively, according to the previous link, but it seems I cannot get them to work.

All the best,
Shuanghe
