The formulas in the quote in http://www.physicsoverflow.org/37048 do not parse correctly. Trying to add dollar signs at the rightr places makes things worse, and puts the editor (in formula display mode) into an infinite loop.

@polarkernel: Thanks! Next time I know that I need to look at the source code to find out what happened....
