bug in mathtext

Hi John,

look at this strange bug in mathtext:

from matplotlib.matlab import *

plot([1,2,3])

[<matplotlib.lines.Line2D instance at 0x4120f4cc>]

title(r’$\alpha=6.6$’)

<matplotlib.text.Text instance at 0x4120f46c>

show()

the two sixes in the title are replaced by ‘&’ resulting in: \alpha=&.&

I am running 0.54.2

thanks

Yes. While working on Postscript support for TrueType Fonts, I came across this bug. It will be fixed in a future release.
