# Can't render the \dagger LaTex symbol

The improved error messages are not on the 1.1.x branch. They will be in the first of the 1.2.x series.

In this particular case, however, you seem to be running into a problem by not using raw strings. The "\f" in "\frac" is getting converted by Python into a formfeed character. Use r"\frac{S}{S_0}" and you should have more luck.

Should this have been resolved already? Does it relate to this issue?
