### Is the complement of an injective continuous map $\mathbb{R}\to \mathbb{R}^2$ with closed image necessarily disconnected?
I am interested in the following Jordan curve theorem-esque question: Suppose that you are given a continuous, injective map $\gamma: \mathbb{R}\to \mathbb{R}^2$ such that the image is a closed ...
