Lessons from my writing:

1. The mastodon interface has no markdown preview; can admins add one? For example, here's one: kerzol.github.io/markdown-math

2. Greek letters are *expensive*; latex $$\alpha$$ is 6 characters, plus 4 for math mode. Unicode α is only 1.

3. All those extra spaces in my easy-to-read latex source add up!

1. I want to do that, but don't have much time to devote to this site
2. I believe you can use unicode inside MathJax, eg $$α$$
