I'm a mathematician working in algebra. I've been using TeX since 1987, but couldn't write my Ph.D. thesis with it. Sob!

I teach LaTeX at my university, besides the mathematics courses. I'm the author of some LaTeX packages and even of one Plain TeX package. At my site it's possible to download my book on LaTeX programming (in Italian, sorry).

Here's my motto for TeX.SX:

Pronto prontissimo son come il fulmine: sono il factotum della città. (From "Il barbiere di Siviglia", music by Gioachino Rossini, libretto by Cesare Sterbini.)

comment Typesetting mathematical formulas in line breaking
The repetition of the symbol is used in Russian typography; it's not used in Western typography. Personally I find it useless and confusing.

Well done! Probably also \iac needs a patch so that the article doesn't become part of the hyperlink; or will the final patch work also for the lowercase situation?

I suspect that the problem is in the usage of \@firstupper, that can't work along with hyperref. I'm afraid there's no quick fix.

@MickG Run TeX Live Manager and update everything.

@MickG You probably have a faulty installation; the \str_case:nnTF function (along with \str_case:nnF) was introduced in July 2013. Check the path of l3basics.sty in your .log file: what's it?
