Note that writing $x^{2}$ produces the mathematical expression $x^{2}$.

I was wondering if sometime in the future the Math Educators SE could parse <math> </math> such that they map to the same token as $.


This would be done to make it easier to re-use formulas from Wikipedia on The Math Educators Stack Exchange.

    $\begingroup$ @XanderHenderson This hostile comment makes unwarranted assumptions. There are plenty of valid reasons to copy-paste material. $\endgroup$ Jun 6, 2023 at 11:17

Running https://npm.runkit.com/mathml-to-latex on the MathML from this TeX.SE question produced this:

$$ a < x < a + \left(\delta\right)_{1} \Rightarrow \left|f_{1} \left(x\right) - L_{1}\right| < \frac{L_{1} - L_{2}}{2} \\ \Rightarrow L_{1} - \frac{L_{1} - L_{2}}{2} < f_{1} \left(x\right) < L_{1} + \frac{L_{1} - L_{2}}{2} \\ \Rightarrow \frac{L_{1} + L_{2}}{2} < f_{1} \left(\right. x \left.\right)\textrm{ }$$

It seems to have extra parentheses around $\delta$.

An outline of the code for RunKit (linked above);

var mathmlToLatex = require("mathml-to-latex");

const mathml = `<your MathML code here>`;
