Description
when typing a math expression inline, the expression appears to be tyset visibly higher than the surrounding wiki text. Is there a known way to align the math expressions with the text?

(a few hours later) Ok - now that I got the page2pdf debugged on my server, I ran it and noticed that it is not vertically misalligned in the pdf. In fact, the pdf output is very sharp! The misalignment is only on my screen. I am using Firefox 3.0. A fix would be nice, but the problem is not critical.

Thanks,

skarred

Proposed solution
Does the last equation in the list on Latex Equations exhibit the same behaviour? The 2 in the “a over 2” is aligned to the baseline in my browser. Like this: \frac{a}{2} should be on (or just below) the baseline.

See also: the ordered pair \left(x,y\right) is blah blah blah … The display is now better — the fix is to change the alignment of the image to use the style vertical-align: text-bottom.

Resolution
Firefox inserts the height of a descender below an inline image. Changed the vertical-align setting for inline equations in Publish PDF version 2.2.8 — see Thursday, 1 January 2009.
