Why won't it convert it to MathML?

comment How do I increase spacing between unit components in pgfplots?
Works — but does not address the question why the space is eaten when I'm using siunitx inside pgfplots, but the space appears when I use siunitx directly.

comment Why are my marks not drawn?
I suppose compat=1.8 does not extend to things that should not have worked in the first place, but accidentally did due to bugs...

comment Why are my marks not drawn?
Strange. I copied over code from my thesis (pgfplots version 1.8) and I certainly have the markers there in my thesis. Ah well, I got it to work now :)

comment Why are my marks not drawn?
Aah. Did this perhaps accidentally work in older pgfplots versions?

comment Is there a ditto symbol?
I'm using it in a table where I'm starved for space and my entries are "primary, raw", "primary, smoothed", "secondary, raw", "secondary, smoothed". I don't have space to fit primary/secondary and smoothed/raw in its own column, nor to write it out in full, so I opt for "primary, raw", "---, smoothed", "secondary, raw", "secondary, ---", which saves a centimetre or two.

comment mhchem and beamer: use of `\ce` in title gives `Undefined control sequence.`
I will probably do that. Indeed, I have a working example but it's not very minimal...

Hmm. Although it solves the problem posted in the question, it has side-effects for the layout of the poster I'm trying to make.

@MomoTh You should try to figure out exactly what the problem is and then post it as a new question.

comment How do I get numbered entries in a beamer bibliography
When using biblatex+biber, karlkoellers answer results in all items labelled [0], but @GonzaloMedina's answer works correctly.

Yet another option: convert the resulting PDF to MS Word.

comment Generate external images for all equations in a document
Immediately voting to close my own question as a duplicate — only after writing the full question did Stack Exchange suggest a similar question containing the answer, but this 'path' may still be useful for future answer-seekers.

comment Should one cite a LaTeX package in a scientific publication?
@Fran I disagree. Why must R be cited for reproducibility? Taking the same code with the same parameters and the same bugs is not properly reproducing. Describe the mathematics, and whether the maths is implemented in R, Matlab, Python, or your grandfathers abacus, is an irrelevant or potentially dangerous detail. I will acknowledge my tools, but in the acknowledgements, not in the methodology. We used function x in package y is not a scientific way to describe a methodology. But this discussion is off-topic on TeX - LaTeX and belongs on Academia.
