The documentation for DifferenitalD states:
DifferenitalD[x] displays as dx , where instead of d appears the
smybol entered as "esc dd esc" (without the spaces). Yet when I
enter DifferentialD[x] and evaluate I get back DifferenitalD[x] (not
"esc dd esc x ").
The documentation for CapitalDifferentialD seems identical to that for
DifferentialD. Yet when I enter CapitalDifferentialD[x] I get Dx
where D is the symbol entered as "esc DD esc".
Moreover, "esc dd esc x" evaluates to DifferenitalD[x] but "esc DD esc
x" evaluates to "esc DD esc x".
It is all so confusing I feel like giving up on Mathematica
typesetting altogether. Can anyone explain what is going on here?
This is with
"6.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (March 13, 2008)"
