In my answer to this question I suddenly felt the need to include formula's. I am sorry for this, it is a bad habit of mine, but I am sure it will happen more often.

Is there any way to format those formula's nicely in a way that I have seen for example on the math.stackexchange site?

    $\begingroup$ This question appears to be off-topic because the answer is obsolete (this was asked during private beta). There was also another question asked later: meta.aviation.stackexchange.com/questions/145/… $\endgroup$ Jan 8, 2014 at 4:53

Not yet.

MathJax isn't added to Stack Exchange sites by default because it significantly slows page load time. Sites can request MathJax once they enter public beta, but they have to make a good case for why their site needs it. Once MathJax is turned on it can't be turned off.


It is now possible to include MathJaX:

$$ e=mc^2 $$
