What is the “right” way to typeset a second derivative?
you have to turn on
but it has the side effect of also collapsing more:
$x'' >= 10$
(which is why the mechanism is currently turned off by default)
i'll think about an option that only does some specific ones only
(btw, i love tex but these primes are a bit painful due to th eorriginal
approach which has lead mixtures of (1) raised in the font and/or raised
in the engine, (2) them being superscripts but not really, (3) fonts
therefore doing it inconsistently, (4) some parsing related to multiple
scripts, (5) double, tripple, etc primes being real unicode characters
but spaced singles in traditional tex (which itself then introduces some
size juggling) ... i could proabbly write a few pages about it)
So what's the best way to input them: using \prime, \prime\prime, etc.?
