Re: LaTeX package request

It appears we cannot. What symbols are you looking for within that package?

Re: LaTeX package request

Testing
Code:
\MakeUppercase{\text{\romannumeral 1}}
$\MakeUppercase{\text{\romannumeral 1}}$
Why doesn't this work on any forum?
Can we have roman numerals added?

I'll ask the Mathjax support group about it but you're wrapping it in the \text{} tag, so why would it render a roman numeral?

Re: LaTeX package request

What is the reason to want roman numerals?
It's easy enough to create them as text.

When I type up questions, if the convention is to use roman numerals for identifying items, I will use them.
If you see the pdf I uploaded, the eigenvalues are denoted sigma subscript roman numerals in Continuum Mechanics.
