Re: Re: Re: Re: typsetting bug still present in


This time it is certainly not a problem with the documentation. What  
the documentation says is exactly what should happen:  in fact it is  
the only sensible thing that could happen. What actually happens is  
not at all sensible since is the result of an oversight, which, in  
fact, can be fixed with a single line of code:

MakeBoxes[DifferentialD[x_],fmt_]:=RowBox[{"\ 
[DifferentialD]",ToBoxes[x,fmt]}]

But, of course, it should not be left to the user to have to do it.
