BTW:Take a look at the previous link to compare.

Thanks
If you right-click on a formula it brings up the MathJax menu. It seems to remember your settings (perhaps stored using HTML5 local storage).

The default rendering method is HTML-CSS (meant to be the best), however you can switch between MathML and SVG too (Math Settings >> Math Renderer). Which one is best presumably depends on your browser/fonts etc. I'd imagine fonts are loaded remotely though.

SVG might be better for a "bolder" (and perhaps more anti-aliased) look, especially if your browser doesn't smooth/anti-alias fonts as well.

Also you can define a "Scale All Math..." percentage if you'd like the equations to be a different size.

Is there a way to have inline formulas as well? Currently, if I want to type only one symbol in latex, like \[ b \], it will put it on a new line which looks ugly, as you can see above.

Ideally, both inline and display math should be supported. Very useful for this forum!

Usually in mathjax this is using escaped ( instead of [. Seems to work: here is \(y\frac{\sin(x)}{2}\) in the middle of a sentence... :)

It appears that MathJax has not been implemented on the new server. Would you please do this? Thanks.

Can you bring our beloved mathjax back?
Maybe I can help on that as I once experienced in PHP development.

Well it should be as simple as re-adding the MathJax script source to the overall_header.html template file. See here:
