Hi www-math, On the MathJax issue tracker <https://github.com/mathjax/MathJax/issues/1228> we had a discussion revolving around embellished operators and line breaks. The example from a user was <math xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML"> <mtext>A</mtext> <mo>+</mo> <mtext>B</mtext> <mspace linebreak="newline" /> <mtext>C</mtext> </math> which won't have a line break in MathJax rendering because the spec seems to say it's one big embellished operator. My question is: shouldn't a pure linebreak end the scope of an embellished operator instead? Personally, I find it odd that mtext is considered space-like. It does not seem to meet the criteria of the spec ("typically render as whitespace", "do not affect the mathematical meaning" -- neither is typical for mtext). It seems even more problematic in an HTML5 context, where mtext is one entry point for HTML mixing. Best regards, Peter.
