Pages can be written in markdown, which I’ve already used for a lot of my
teaching material, and both code and mathematical equations end up rendered
nicely. One additional thing it does, is use
Blackfriday which is a markdown
processor that converts shortcodes to different symbols and can make
everything look a little nicer. It’ll automatically render things like
as 1⁄2 for example, or
(R) as ®.
This last one was a bit of a problem as I have
(R) in one of my
as part of a reference to a Physical Review B Rapid Communication.
I didn’t want this to be substituted with a ® but also didn’t want to
disable Blackfriday completely. As you’ve seen here, another alternative is
to mark it as code; but this would have looked off in a reference. I didn’t
find any other good alternatives in the documentation, or support forums.
I figured out onne way around this, that will make everything look like it
should, and lets you keep using Blackfriday elsewhere is to substitute part of
the shortcode with unicode. For example, writing
(R) will produce
(C) will produce ©. You can get a full listing of
need the decimal code to use with this format - so
