Sorry : One word disappeared : Here is the question again :
In the model category of topological spaces. I would like to know if the
pushout of a weak homotopy equivalence along a map of the form
(Id,i):YxA-->YxX, where Id is the identity of Y and where i:A-->X is a
cofibration, is still a weak homotopy equivalence or not ? If Y is cofibrant,
then (Id,i):YxA-->YxX is still a cofibration and so the pushout will be a
weak homotopy equivalence. What can it happen if Y is not cofibrant anymore ?
