Math Engine MathJax

MathJax is a javascript library that uses the TeX algorithms and fonts to display math formulas on HTML pages. It allows for very fine-grained configuration, is widely used and works on all modern browsers.

This engine marks up math formulas with the standard MathJax syntax of \(...\) for inline math and \[...\] for block math (works for both version 2.x and 3.x of MathJax). The only other thing to do is to include the MathJax library itself on the HTML page.

Note that kramdown does not ship with the MathJax library and that therefore the “default” template does not include a link to it! The MathJax documentation describes how to add a link to MathJax to your page.
