BTW, the integral sign is U+222B.

"not possible" is not quite correct. But in the text the word 'integral' 
makes more sense. If you do not like the picture with the x placeholder 
and you have a better suggestion, you should open an issue in Bugzilla 
for it. Same, if you have a better solution for the text.

Such changes should not be done in one translation in Pootle, but have 
to be done in core, for the English original. And then will show up for 
all languages.

Kind regards
