Yes this is ignored because transformations happen after the content is parsed 
and converted into an AST (we call it an XDOM). Then the icon transformation 
runs and it’ll find a SpecialSymbolBlock (the “(“), followed by a WordBlock 
(the “i”), followed by a SpecialSymbolBlock (the “)“) and it’ll transform it 
into an image.

This is the solution and it works fine for me.

Only other options I know are to:
* turn off the icon transformation
* configure the icon transformation to not transform (i)
