# Update on MathJax

MathJax has come a long way since I last looked at it. There is now a CDN hosting the js files, which makes calling it really really easy. It’s being adopted by GiHub for their wiki engine.

Using it with markdown can cause a few bumps, but there seems to be a bunch of ways around this:

• [mathjax in markdown][mim] using some mathjax configuration and custom css
• [amazing implimentation][ai] in a notetaking app
• [php, mathjax and wordpress][phpm]

Writing a block of %%\LaTeX%% like this

\begin{aligned} \dot{x} & = \sigma(y-x) \\ \dot{y} & = \rho x - y - xz \\ \dot{z} & = -\beta z + xy \end{aligned}


will render like this

\begin{aligned} \dot{x} & = \sigma(y-x) \ \dot{y} & = \rho x - y - xz \ \dot{z} & = -\beta z + xy \end{aligned}
