There are a number of communities in the Stack Exchange network that use MathJax to allow for rendering of mathematical expressions. Some that come to mind are Math and Physics.
In my opinion, Engineering would greatly benefit from allowing such syntax in questions and answers in this community as well.
Was this a deliberate decision not to support MathJax? Or is it simply that additional work is required to enable it? If the latter, what action can we take to help that get accomplished?
