[Tex/LaTex] Use of math mode with SIstyle


When using the SIstyle package, I noticed that numbers inside \SI{}{} and \num{} appear in a slightly different style than inside $$.

  • Do the \SI{}{} and \num{} commands come with math mode already?
  • Should I place math mode around this? E.g. $\SI{}{}$ and $\num{}$.

Best Answer

SIstyle follows the local environment font definition. If your text and math fonts (mathrm) are different, it will give different output.

I am not doing any further development work (just maintenace) on SIstyle and everthing has moved over to siunitx where Joseph Wright is doing a fantastic job. I would recommend to change to siunitx
