mathstodon.xyz users: I've found out why LaTeX sometimes isn't rendered: it's a bug in MathJax! See https://github.com/mathjax/MathJax-src/issues/421 for the details.
For now, I think you can avoid it by not putting a math delimiter at the start of a line. Even a single space should be enough to avoid the bug.
@christianp Not sure how that creates this problem ...
Trying to fix it ...
@christianp OK, the problems seems still to exist here:
@christianp Oh, bizarre, it did exist, and now it doesn't.
OK, seems to be fixed. Thanks.
