Will you be adding support for cases in mathjax?

    I have to admit that I don't know what that means.

    MathJax is included as a convenience, but I'm not a math guy. If MathJax can support it, though, I can probably get it working. Do you have a link to any documentation from MathJax on this?

    This is something I would be interested in as well.

    The implentation in Markdown-Here (Chrome/Firefox plugin to allow Markdown in Gmail) works pretty well for me. I think it uses MathJax so perhaps that would be a starting point.

    Hello -- I bought Marked specifically for MathJax support, specifically as advertized here, but I can't guess how to make it work. I tried following instructions like these,, copied here


    You can render LaTeX mathematical expressions using MathJax, as on [][1]:

    The Gamma function satisfying $\Gamma(n) = (n-1)!\quad\forall
    n\in\mathbb N$ is via the Euler integral

    $$ \Gamma(z) = \int_0^\infty t^{z-1}e^{-t}dt\,. $$

    Tip: Make sure you include MathJax into your publications to render mathematical expression correctly. Your page/template should include something like:

    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

    and i wrote the following

    # Math Test

    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

    $\mu = 42$
    which displays like this
    $\mu = 42$ instead of typeset like math. Can you help, please & thanks?

    Which version of Marked are you using? If you're on 1.4, you have to use
    \[ delimiters as documented in the MultiMarkdown documentation. If
    you're on 2.x, you should be able to use $ as you show, assuming MathJax
    is enabled in Style preferences.

    Looks like 1.4 (228). I just tried

    [\mu = 42]
    and it didn't display correctly. Can you give me a (full even if tiny, like the above) example or point me to the appropriate documentation lest I be doomed to continuing trial-and-error?

    I did put in the correct bracketing syntax in my sample, it just didn't show up in my response above. My .md file looks like

    let me try that again in plain text. My full MD sample (which doesn't work) is this (copy pasted from text edit)

    Math Test

    [\mu = 42]

    oh my god, I can't get this forum to stop formatting my pastes & just show my stuff literally -- i'm including a file. Sorry for the noise :(

    Still wondering which version... From the MMD documentation:

     \\[ {e}^{i\pi } 1=0 \\]
     \\[ {x}_{1,2}=\frac{-b\pm \sqrt{{b}^{2}-4ac}}{2a} \\]
     You can also include formulas within a sentence, such as \\({x}^{2} {y}^{2}=1\\).

    This works in 2.2 and should work in 1.4:


    Tip: Indent your code examples by 5 spaces to get exact formatting.

    In 2.x, this also works for inline equations:

     ${e}^{i\pi } 1=0$

    When are you posting 2.x on the App Store? I am trying to get this to work and it doesn't work with $ delimiters. The MMD reference says they should work:

    First, that's not an official MMD reference. The version in 1.4 does not recognize $ delimiters. 2.0 will be submitted to the App Store next week as a new application requiring a new purchase. Availability will depend on the review process.

    Here's the official version:


    What pricing are you look at for Marked 2? Is the upgrade pay-for for everyone or only App Store users? (Apologies if this is getting too far off-topic :))

    Marked 2's official price will _probably_ be $13.99 US. It will be
    offered initially at an "intro" price to allow users to upgrade,
    probably $9.

    Note that it's available right now for 11.99 at
