Also, as far as I know (and maybe I am just ignorant), there is no way to deal
with wrapping of mathematics e.g.
f(x) = ax^4 + bx^3 + cx^2 + dx + e
should wrap to the right of the equals sign as far as possible (i.e. up until
the point the screen is too narrow) like:
f(x) = ax^4 + bx^3
+ cx^2 + dx
I'm also not sure there exists a simple mechanism to get multiple lines of
mathematics to line up on a specified point like:
He + He <-> Be + gamma
Be + He <-> C*
C* -> C + gamma
- clearly one could hand tweak this on a case by case basis but it's not ideal.
In addition to those, I'm pretty sure there are also significant character
spacing issues if you're looking for TeX-quality rendering.
