A lot of the question and answers that I am interested in would benefit from a TeX-like typesetting capability like they have at math.

Should we get that?

  • Thanks. So this is the Google API approach? Does Mehrad 's answer about latex (said to work on Physics and math SE sites) work here at GIS.SE as well?

MathJax is a very heavy dependency so we'd need a lot of evidence that a majority of posts on the site would benefit from Tex/LaTeX support.

Otherwise every page load is slowed for every user, substantially, for not much reason...

An example of somthing MathJax can do is shown below:

renderd output from the mathjax

$$ \spadesuit \heartsuit \diamondsuit \clubsuit \qquad \color{red}{\heartsuit} \color{red}{\diamondsuit}  \color{red}{\heartsuit} \color{red}{\diamondsuit}$$ 

Whenever MathJax is not supported, we can use the Google Chart API.


Example of foo + bar

I copied this example from Michael Mrozek

![foo+bar](https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=tx&chl=foo%2bbar)

foo+bar


Example of \sqrt{foo}

I copied this example from Michael Mrozek

![\sqrt{foo}](https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=tx&chl=%5Csqrt%7Bfoo%7D)

\sqrt{foo}
