    I have split off formally etale morphism from etale morphism. Then I added the general-abstract topos theoretic characterization, essentially by copy-and-pasting the discussion from formally smooth morphism (and replacing epimorphisms by isomorphisms)

    Is equation (1) right at formally etale morphism? In that it has a \prod instead of a \coprod

    It just looks funny to me, in that you could have used × blah\times_{blah} instead.

    it’s supposed to be the fiber product, yes. I thought the bigger the symbol for blahblah, the more reason to use blah\prod_{blah} instead of × blah\times_{blah}! :-)

    I raised this TeX.SE question in order to pretty up the situation. Unfortunately, the maths I was trying to use didn’t work there, so here it is: $one \sideset{}{_{three}}\prod two$ (in source form, because it doesn’t work here either).

    Hmm, how about nolimitsa\prod\nolimits{_a}

    no, that doesn’t work, at least here.

    I have added in the References-section at formally etale morphism a mentioning of Joyal’s lectures from the 1970 where the pullback-definition discussed in the entry apparently first appears (is there any printed trace of these lectures?) and to an article by Dubuc where this is recalled / discussed.

    This page had several links to nlab.mathforge.org that no longer seem to work.
    Maybe it's a holdover from previous years, but they were constructed using an explicit html <a> tag instead of the usual markup for cross-referencing on the nlab with double brackets.
    As a quick fix, I just replaced nlab.mathforge everywhere with ncatlab.

    I don't know if this is a known issue, but it worries me that there might be a lot of these bad links floating around (though I haven't encountered them) so I thought I should bring this to your attention.

    Also as to the content of the page, I find the introduction very confusing. The page is about formally etale morphisms, but the first sentence is about formally etale spaces, making the 2nd sentence incongruous and I'm not quite sure how to fix it.

    This page had several links to nlab.mathforge.org … they were constructed using an explicit html <a> tag instead of the usual markup for cross-referencing on the nlab with double brackets.

    I guess whoever made then didn’t know how to link to sections and HowTo#links_to_sections doesn’t help much and really needs to be updated.

    In particular one can just use “pipe” naming: [[HowTo#links_to_sections|linking sections]] -> linking sections.

    EDIT: I’m now working on updating HowTo#how_to_make_links_to_subsections_of_a_page

    Thanks for the alert in #8. I don’t know what happened there. I have removed the first sentence and added another paragraph. (But I don’t have time to do this entry justice right now).

    Regarding the funny links: This is a remnant from the early dates of the nnLab. I don’t think there are many of these left.
