# Help page about embedding LaTeX is wrong, needs fixin'

https://electronics.stackexchange.com/editing-help#latex is plain wrong, $x$ doesn't work on EE.SE, $x$ does (which, honestly, is super annoying, because we're dealing with far more math than finances).

Could someone fix that page?

• Thank you for picking this up! But also: I know we can't change the past, and I don't see a good solution for existing \$ questions to coexist with potentialy new $-only answers if we should ever decide to change that, but the reasoning for the escaped dollar sign is simply not very good, imho (most users here are probably no US-based anymore, and we really do less pricing and more math by now).
