For sure, it'd be better if \\' wasn't converted at all when exporting to

But how do you insert a backlash in the resulting div/ps/pdf then? My

expectation was that converting \\ into \textbackslash was more common than
inserting linebreaks in title (of which I didn't think in fact...)


As Tim told:


"So, from the perspective of standard LaTeX classes, any instance of \\ in
   the \author{} command should not be converted during export."


I wanted to express that there are certainly more cases where you want the
backslashes in the AUTHOR and TITLE meta-tags to be passed as is, than
converted to their LaTeX equivalent.


But, your question makes sense: what if one really wants a backslash in the
author list or in the title...


Problem stays for the authors as it seems that \newline is not good for the
standard article class...


Hi,

A workaround is this:

\author{Einstein \dblbackslash{} Bose}
