I have this table in org-mode that I wish to export to pdf:

#+ATTR_LATEX: :align |r|r|r| :font \ttfamily \tiny 
|service | port |  hex   |
|mdns    | 5353 |  14e9  |

after export 14e9 in the pdf is replaced with 14(9) in the table.

How do I get the right value in the export?

What component is doing this misinterpretation? Tabular is used for LaTeX table.


The variable org-latex-table-scientific-notation is responsible for this behavior.

Customize this variable and set it to No formatting option to avoid conversion of numbers resembling scientific notation.

Alternatively, use upper-case for your hex values, which look nicer than lowercase.
