Update: The decision has been made to deactivate MathJax on the site. This does not reflect the current votes, as these changed significantly after the decision was made.
We've had MathJax support for 3 days now. While it makes our maths challenges look neat, it has also created two problems:
- The presentation of some search results is messed up.
- Indentation of code blocks and Stack Snippets are messed up.
Especially the latter is a fairly big deal around here. So far, only a few questions have adopted MathJax, and these could still be reverted. However, if we wait any longer, too much content on this site will rely on MathJax to be able to revert MathJax support.
Chris has asked me to get a new community consensus on whether we want to keep MathJax. Apparently, fixing the above issues is not a priority (although it might happen some day).
Do we want MathJax to be deactivated until these issues are fixed?
$foo$, and similarly
$$), which would give us MathJax and unbroken code blocks for the most part (how often are you going to have
\$happen twice in one code block?). The only reason I'm not posting this as an answer is that I still haven't Done the Science™ on a site with
\$as their delimiter to make sure that this would actually fix the problem. \$\endgroup\$
<killjax>in the post body? If so, that would help a lot. I don't have much problem with the search result issue, but snippets and code blocks should probably work right. Alternatively, a tag that enables it on a post, and have it skip others by default. \$\endgroup\$

/\$/might be popular in string-matching challenges. \$\endgroup\$
