    the entry braid group said what a braid is, but forgot to say what the braid group is; I added in a sentence, right at the beginning (and fixed some other minor things).

    This entry is not displaying well. The svg graphics do not display and something is going wrong with the the headings further down to page. I could not see what was causing this.

  1. Thanks for raising this, Tim. The problem is the svg code that is put directly in the entry. I would suggest to extract the code for each graphic into a file, and then upload it as an svg image to the nLab, using the usual syntax for images.

    I do not have time myself just now, but can do it when I get the chance if no-one manages it beforehand.

    What is wrong with the headings? I tried what I thought would solve it but it did not have any effect.

  2. The svg code confuses the renderer, I believe.

    The examples of SVG diagrams on knot and knot group work fine!

    I tried the svg code in inkscape and it worked well. I created a pdf file and tried to add that to the braid group page but could not get the syntax right!

    It depends a bit on the content of the svg code I think. Although knot does not look correct to me.

    I think something like


    should work. I don’t think it matters what the file extension is.

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with the svg code per se, just that it is confusing the renderer. So it would be OK to have it as an svg graphic, just not with the code embedded.
