  GMP currently uses emphasize for math in the HTML GMP manual,
  via @math{...} (and MPFR has copied to it). For instance, for
  mpz_mul_2exp, one has "Set rop to op1 times 2 raised to op2." where
  the whole "op1 times 2 raised to op2" is emphasized, i.e. typically
  rendered in italics (or with a different color with lynx).

  While I agree that variables should be in italics (@var ensures
  that), having full text about math in italics seems wrong.

Our rendering of maths really ought to be much better.  I started a
rewrite of all maths formulas some years ago, but never finished it.
