# Question:mathfrak symbol in LaTeX question bank

I usually write my question banks with LaTeX.

The manual says:

The LaTeX package epsfig is loaded by default. The ed package is required. Other standard LaTeX packages, for example, amsmath, can be included using the \usepackage macro.

But if I start my document with

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{ed}

and use for example \mathfrak{P} I only get a blank box instead of this symbol in my question bank.

In the question bank from my LaTeX file I find <mi>&#120083;</mi> as a translation of \mathfrak{P}.

I replaced <mi>&#120083;</mi> by <mi>&Pfr;</mi> and this works.

Is there any automatic solution for this problem?

Any help is welcome!

Regards

Michael
