      Description

      With MathML some browsers got support for beautiful mathematical formulas/equations. MathJax (http://www.mathjax.org) is a JavaScript library that adds support for MathML, LaTeX and AsciiMath to all Browsers and platforms. I would expect that it would be a big help for scientists if we add support for mathematical formulas in our meta data fields or at least the description field. MathJax seems to be a useful library for that and is licensed under the compatible Apache License.
