Why is a broken equation editor a new feature? Seems to me to be a step backwards; gonna have to start piling rocks together to express numerals and work my way thru roman numberals ... ;)

    i think there is a conspiricay afoot to limit our ability to answer quaestions in a way that resembles a modicum of intelligence lol

    I think it still works. Can't figure out how to write fractions.

    (I just tried it and it seems to work fine for me, so want to get a bit more info as I try and find the issue.)

    chaguanas -- yeah, I still need to get a toolbar item for fractions in there. You can do fractions in two ways. If the fraction is over the entire thing, you can use \over. e.g.: 2x^2 + 3x + 2 \over 3x^2 + 2x - 9 is: \[2x^2 + 3x + 2 \over 3x^2 + 2x - 9\] If you have multiple equations, you can use \frac{numerator}{denominator}, e.g.: \frac{1}{2}x^2 + 3x + \frac{2}{x^3} is: \[\frac{1}{2}x^2 + 3x + \frac{2}{x^3}\]

    test \[a^2+b^2\] too heavy for mathjax shadowfiend?

    No LaTeX no fun :( (I am going off) How if you use image instead shadowfiend? for example using mimetex.cgi. It is uglier than mathjax but it is lightweight.

    Oh, sorry -- when I said I knew why it was happening I didn't mean I was going to fix it immediately :) Everything should be working now. It's interesting because it seems like which browsers broke was inconsistent. Anyway, everything's fixed up. We switched to a new version of MathJax and their way of loading the configuration file changed, but I failed to change along with it. I'm guessing in certain situations it went ahead and loaded the default configuration, and in others it failed to.

    So are you using MathJax 1.1 ?

    Yep. There are still some bugs with rendering in real time, unfortunately, which I'll be pinging the MathJax folks about.

    And sorry, to respond to your image suggestion: images are more load on the server, and generally look worse. The upside is, they're a bit less buggy. But, we're huge fans of MathJax. Wouldn't give it up for the world :)
