Near the bottom of this page in our Help section, the dissociation of $\ce{HCl}$ in $\ce{H2O}$ is shown. However a resonance arrow is displayed rather than an equilibrium arrow. Since we're a chemistry site it seems like we should correct this, but I wasn't sure how to edit the page myself.

I will look into it a bit further, but it appears as though the help page is interpreting the <=> symbol as an HTML tag, and is therefore not rendering it properly.

  • $\begingroup$ Nah, just kidding. I have the latest Chrome and the very section in the very section of help looks like,..... oh, never mind. :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @ManishEarth Just took a look at the page in question and it is not displaying correctly for me. I can see the mathjax code rather than the finished product in both IE11 and Firefox 34.0 $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @MARamezani I don't understand your comments. Does the equation display correctly in Chrome? Did it always? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ No, the error you first mentioned was there too. And this second error, "gibberish-like mathjax code" is currently what is being seen from the 'Chrome' point of view. And about the comments, ignore me. I sometimes get like this. :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Somehow it looked fine yesterday. I undid it. SE's XSS filter is tripping on it. $\endgroup$ Jan 2 '15 at 3:05
