# 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. https://forums.ankiweb.net/t/on-anki-2-1-50-arrows-are-not-properly-rendered-when-writing-chemical-reactions

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