Mathjax replacing < with {\lt} breaks spacing

In the latest version of anki, typing

\(1 < 2\)

gets automatically converted to

1 {\lt} 2

by the Mathjax preview, which causes the spacing around the binary operator to be lost. The correct substitution should avoid adding curly braces.


This was a problem I also had with the new version of Anki. But it will be fixed in 2.1.52. Here is link to the thread where this issue was discussed.


Ah thanks, I must have missed that thread when I searched the forums.
