comment Can I mark when there is a line break in inline math?
Don't worry about "acceptability"; that's irrelevant to my request and only came up as background. If you feel that is important, then I haven't done a good enough job explaining the question.

comment Can I mark when there is a line break in inline math?
I want to jump to each instance of a line break that occurred during math mode. One way to do this would be for the log to tell me every line number in the source where it happens. Another way would be to insert an obtrusive slug where it happens, which is a strong enough visual signal to give each page less than a second of review time. But in a document full of math mode, with coloring all over, this color coding approach is still asking me to inspect one line at a time, making each page take say 10 seconds, and making the whole process on 200 pages be mentally taxing.

Actually it looks like this still leaves a lot of manual inspection. The color coding helps for sure, but mostly it's still "look at the right edge of one line, and look at the left of the next, and repeat". The slug only comes in when there's an overfull box.

Now that the slug is there (and lurid), this is good. Without the slug, it still looked like I'd have a lot of manual inspection to do. I'll accept this if there isn't a log-based answer forthcoming. Thanks!

@Mico I think you are misunderstanding the question. I will manually determine what is acceptable by inspecting each instance and considering the context (and then if I want to change something, manually making some kind of change). To that end, I want to be able to jump to each instance of any line break within math mode without having to manually look at each right edge of each line of text on each page. I'll edit the question to hopefully clear this up.

@wipet Can you explain a bit how that would work? If the inline math is line breaking, how would \overfullrule help? Or are you suggesting that I also prevent inline math from breaking at the same time? I wonder though if doing that might push all the math to the next line, and then I'd still miss such instances when I reverted to turning these things off.

comment Can tikz be directed to ignore all text and math?
@TorbjørnT. Thanks, I'll give this a try. It might get me far enough.

@cfr Yes, the graphical part of such an image needs a description in alt text or a caption or the surrounding text. For that, I have work to do. But many of these images have math expressions too, and I'd rather let MathJax provide the MathML to a screen reader than come up with alt text. Also, there is the other reason for this: allowing the width/height of the svg to rescale without affecting the size of the text/math relative to the text/math in the paragraphs surrounding the image.

Also it would allow for the svg portion to be scaled separately from the text parts, so it wouldn't matter if the page dynamically rescaled the svg, while leaving the MathJax consistent in size with the rest of the page.

@cfr Because of the accessibility features that MathJax offers. Such a picture with the text and math as an image is not web accessible. A screen reader can't access those things. A user can't manipulate (zoom) the math alone. And it's less important (to me), but a user can't see the input tex for any math content.

comment bitmap inclusion with latex->dvi failing
@JosephWright I added the log. I don't see a .bb file on either my system (where it works) or hers (where it doesn't).

comment bitmap inclusion with latex->dvi failing
@JosephWright Why does the bitmap inclusion work for me on my machine with latex mwe.tex, but not for her on hers with the same command? I've always thought bmp was supported with tex->dvi->ps->pdf. But this answer omits bmp; was I wrong or is that new?

comment Is there a right way to provide an empty operand to an equals sign?
@GustavoMezzetti OK, it's not an image inclusion though. It's something too complicated to get into here involving another application that uses LaTeX. But LaTeX is just a tool being used by this other application. It's too much to get into, but it's something I just cannot include inside the math mode delimiters.

comment Is there a right way to provide an empty operand to an equals sign?
I'm sorry for the confusion I caused in OP. This is not about abutting some text, like the word "something". I was just trying to represent a generic object. The "something" might be say an image inclusion. I did say something that cannot be rendered in math mode. I am counting a \text{} as something that can be rendered within math mode.

@Sigur It's not text. One example might be an image file inclusion. I just am trying to keep it simple with "something".

Also, when something is just the word "something", and so therefore insertible within the math mode, then $x={}$something seems to agree with $x=\text{something}$ whereas $x=$ something does not.

@AboAmmar But there is still a slight difference between $x=$ something and $x={}$something. Is it a sure thing that the former is better? To my understanding the latter is actually balancing space around the equals sign better.

comment Is there a right way to provide an empty operand to an equals sign?
OK, so it's $x=$ something and definitely not $x=$something. I had some automated LaTeX stuff going on where the space after closing math mode was not automatically generated. It looked bad, so that's when I started putting empty right operands in there. But it turns out I just need a space character after closing math mode.

comment put \item's in minipage
@Bernard No, unless I'm not explaining myself well. If you load enumitem and make an enumerate list with an item that extends to a second line, the option itemindent=1.2em simulates what I mean (but only for single digit enumerated items).

comment put \item's in minipage
@Bernard I mean so that when an item moves on to a second line, the second line starts left flush with the item label.
