In the article, the following section is parsed corretly with the integral symbols:

But, since any ring detects light scattered at the same scattering angle, dS =2pf f2qdq where f is the fraction of a circle covered by a detector ring. Substituting and integrating, we have the power on ring number i as

Pi=òòòe-clP0/Ab(q)dAdx2p f q dq

When you press "Print This Article" the symbols are different. It only happens with the pop-up window and only that formula.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the website given (
2. Click on "Print this article"
3. Compare the formulas from the original article to the new pop-up window
Actual Results:  
The formula had different symbols in print-friendly mode compared to the original page.

This only happened in FireFox. IE 7 and Safari did not have this issue. This page will not work on Linux or Macs since Symbol fonts are not available for them.
