I'm trying to write about naïve modeling, and have written the following header:

## Na\"{i}ve Modeling

That, however, and all variations like it, produce only something that looks like this:

Na"{i}ve Modeling

What have I done wrong?

I'm using TeX Live 2017, version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.18.

  • I thought I had done that with the line of code I had provided, had I not...? – Yehuda Aug 8 '18 at 1:13
  • @CampanIgnis RMarkdown is a way of combining Markdown with R code to produce PDF via conversion to LaTeX. So a traditional MWE is not applicable here. The fact that you can get a MWE LaTeX document to work is irrelevant to the question at hand. – Alan Munn Aug 8 '18 at 2:00

Although you can intersperse raw LaTeX and markdown in an .Rmd file, you can't put LaTeX into a markdown line itself, i.e., lines have to be either all markdown or all LaTeX.

A simple (and better) solution is to simply write the trema directly in the source:

## Naïve Modeling

Alternatively you could have written:

\section{Na\"ive Modeling}


\section{Naïve Modeling}

but obviously this defeats the purpose of using markdown.
