MathJax Block markers


I would just add a small note in the markdown guide (http://thinklab.com/help/writing-in-markdown) that returns are needed before and after the three dollars signs to insert a block. It took me a while to figure out.

Here's an example of what Antoine is talking about

One newline — does not work

Other issue: Math should probably be disabled inside code blocks. Until then this example will be weird.

@alizee thanks for pointing this out. I removed the requirement for having any line breaks before or after the three dollar signs. You might have to refresh the page to get that to work.

@dhimmel you are correct — Mathjax should be disabled within code blocks. I think we'll save this one for later.

  • Antoine Lizee: Thanks! That's the most simple way to go forward.
