A solution to a common problem

You may have faced the situation when math formulas in the body of the wikinotes appear in a smaller size compared to the usual font of math formulas in wiki format. One solution to this problem is to simply inserting expression \,\! somewhere in the formula. For example you should write <mth>\,\!p_{x,y}</math> instead of <maht>p_{x,y}</math>.
\, is used to make a 3/8 quad space in Latex and \! produces a negative space of -3/8 quad. So they cancel each other and fortunately solve the problem mentioned at the same time.

Examples

According to scientists, the Sun is pretty big.<ref>E. Miller, The Sun, (New York: Academic Press, 2005), 23-5.</ref> The Moon, however, is not so big.<ref>R. Smith, "Size of the Moon", Scientific American, 46 (April 1978): 44-6.</ref>

[math]\sqrt{x^2+2x+1}=|x+1| - \left(\left(\frac{2x^2}{x}\right)^2\right)^2[/math]
