Your question:

There seems to be no clear indication of what exactly qualifies as being a “Mathematical Expression” when it comes to using italics or bold in Nemeth. I know that obvious things like numbers and variables qualify, but are “Cos” and “parallel” mathematical terms if not part of an equation and just in the body of text?

*the distinction of a mathematical expression does not matter with bold. The boldface indicators are always used if the text or expression is bold. For italics I would say that a word is not mathematical. [… an italicized phrase which both begins and ends with a word …] An abbreviated function name is mathematical if it occurs in a mathematical context §37.xv*

Regarding your question about the "linked expression", I did consult with the math chair and we agreed:

"The hypotenuse equals:" would not be 7/9. It is embedded as part of the itemized paragraph that is 1/3.

Without an anchor, I think it is not possible to have a link -- it must be linked to something. The solution is displayed and each line should start in cell 5.
