@11011110 I was wondering what you think about the situation of the mediawiki math extension. I'd like to help but I don't really see a productive way of contributing.

@pkra I am on a committee that is supposed to help but also feels ineffective to me. There are actual technical issues why MathJax is difficult for Wikipedia but basically I feel that Wikipedia math formatting has been hijacked by idealogues who have blocked decent math formatting (MathJax) because they are true believers in a dead-end non-solution (MathML). I have a long rant about this that from 2015 I think is still valid: https://11011110.github.io/blog/2015/08/04/mathml-considered-harmful.html

Use \( and \) for inline LaTeX, and \[ and \] for display mode.
