# Will we need MathJax/any other formatting here? [closed]

/Proposal: Chemistry

Most SE sites use MathJax for mathematical formatting. Will we need it? Also, does anyone know of a simple mathjax-like chemistry formula renderer (that way we can avoid too many <sup>/<sub>s) that we can use.

Another idea would be to write a short bunch of chem macros that will work in mathjax. Stuff like a by-default-\rm-style, and some other stuff. These can be loaded by simply inserting them in a hidden div enclosed in $....$.

• This forum is really to address the proposal process. This discussion is better left for when the site is actually created. – Robert Cartaino Apr 6 '12 at 18:55
