mathvariant

The mathvariant global attribute attribute sets a logical class for textual elements, which is visually distinguished by using special Mathematical Alphanumeric Symbols. With the exception of mi elements with a single character, which are by convention italic, no special classes are used by default.

Note: When possible, directly use Mathematical Alphanumeric Symbols instead of an explicit mathvariant attribute.

Syntax

<math>
<!-- a normal "A" -->
<mtext>A</mtext>

<!-- an italic "A" i.e. "𝐴" -->
<mtext mathvariant="italic">A</mtext>

<!-- an italic "A" i.e. "𝐴"
     (automatic italicization for mi elements with one character) -->
<mi>A</mi>

<!-- a normal "A" -->
<mi mathvariant="normal">A</mi>

<!-- a normal "cos" -->
<mi>cos</mi>

<!-- a bold "cos" i.e. "𝐜𝐨𝐬" -->
<mi mathvariant="bold">cos</mi>

<!-- a double-struck "A" i.e. "𝔸" -->
<mi mathvariant="double-struck">A</mi>

<!-- a fraktur "A" i.e. "𝔄" -->
<mi mathvariant="fraktur">A</mi>

<!-- a looped "ب" i.e. "𞺁" -->
<mi mathvariant="looped">Ψ¨</mi>

<!-- a stretched "ب" i.e. "𞹑" -->
<mi mathvariant="stretched">Ψ¨</mi>
