In reference to integrals:
ive seen this on a site " ò(math stuff)dx, does anyone know what the " ò" symbol is denoting? there was not an integral sign anywhere.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Hmm... http://puu.sh/1W0B0 Are you seeing this like I am? (Ignore the highlights, but I see that the integral is highlighted with my search for "ò")

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0interesting... I was thinking it might be analogous for the integral sign?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it appears that they are using a particular font that changes the ò into an integral sign. I believe what is happening is that you do not have this font typeface (called "Symbol"), so it is not actually displaying it as the author intended.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You're welcome. :) Yeah, I was confused since I've never seen that character in my life. It just reminded me of something I've spotted a few times while browsing Math stuff, which looks more like this: \(\partial\), so it seemed like an integral over a boundary or something weird like that. lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It doesn't seem like they use any other font tricks like that, so I am thinking if you just imagine each ò as an integral sign \(\int\), you'll be good. :P
