Description RGB 2010-12-15 10:05:35 UTC
When writing mathematics, it is usually needed to "negate" an expression. For example, on Math you can insert "exists" but not "not exists". On mathematics there are almost an equal number of normal and "negated" symbols: adding a "not" operator will simplify using them without the need to define all those symbols again.

The feature requested is not implemented on 3.5 beta2 yet.

So, the neg <?> solves your problem?

> So, the neg <?> solves your problem?

"neg" is to take the negation of a Boolean expression. In LaTeX "\not" strikes its argument. For example "\not \in" will produce the same as \notin. In Math, you can do "in" and "notin", but you don't have a general way to strike with a slash (you may however use "overstrike" do draw an horizontal strike)

FYI, to implement \not, MathJax tries to get the corresponding negation of a given Unicode character if it exists or uses 'COMBINING LONG SOLIDUS OVERLAY' (U+0338) otherwise. Alternatively, <menclose notation="updiagonalstrike"> could be implemented in Math.

May be something we can derivate from overstrike.
