    \$\begingroup\$ Although I have voted to close as a duplicate because an earlier question gives the answer, I have also upvoted because IMO this is the second most valuable feature request to improve PPCG. It may be possible to rework this into a non-duplicate question which instead asks for current feedback on community opinion. \$\endgroup\$ Sep 29 '17 at 10:05
  • \$\begingroup\$ There is LaTeX support in the chat room I think which is slightly confusing if our policy is not to have LaTeX support. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Lembik The chat room doesn't have LaTeX, but ATaco's userscripts add LaTeX. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Turns out I was even more confused that I thought. @orlp pointed out what I meant was math.ucla.edu/~robjohn/math/mathjax.html . You can click on "start chatjax" and it will render all LaTeX on the page. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @katana_0 \$\pi \neq \phi\$. It is \$\pi \neq \phi\$. Is that latex? \$\endgroup\$
