## MathJax, at last a decent way to post maths on the web

For a long time, **posting something as simple as a square root on the web has been a major pain**. Despite MathML having been around for years, Firefox is still the only browser (that I know of) to render MathML correctly.

$$p=\Phi\left(\sqrt{2\ln\left(\frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}}\frac{M}{H}\right)}\right)$$

Recently, I did stumble upon MathJax, an **outstanding JavaScript rendering engine for mathematics** that works for all major recent browsers. The syntax is derived from the one of LaTeX, and the output is either MathML (if you have Firefox) or plain HTML/CSS otherwise.

Thanks to MathJax, I have been able to post a long delayed analysis about optimal service levels (that the illustrating formula here above) and economic order quantity. Kudos to the MathJax team!
