In Mikael Öhman's answer to this question, he provides some code for placing an image in math mode as a symbol using the
\mathord declaration. I can define a new command in the preamble using this, and it works, but the image is placed on the baseline of the equation.
I want it to be a good deal taller than typical text, so ideally I could use
\vcenter to center it vertically. When I do include the centering, the image is treated as if it were as wide as the page, i.e. there are about 6 inches of white space following it. (The image is closely cropped, so the white space is certainly created by LaTeX.
Where is the glitch in my code?
