I didn't notice since Safari 3.1.1 renders it as:

sin(xn2)

<integral>-<inf><inf>ei<phi>1+x2ei<phi>1+x2

where <char> is the write symbol, but all symbols are the same size and no spacing

or other layout.

It looks okay in Firefox 2.0.0.14 (though it did complain about missing the mathml

fonts).

IE 7 displays the xml tree.

There is a "show source" link on the left that shows the original ReST wource

for the current page, here is the math markup:

:math:`sin(x_n^2)`

.. math::

\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}\frac{e^{i\phi}}{1+x^2\frac{e^{i\phi}}{1+x^2}}

The latex file also renders the equations nicely.

I don't mind using latex for math where is really helps but I think we

should try to keep it to a minimum, since it appears mathml in the

browsers is poorly supported. I also want to keep the docstrings as

human readable as possible. I know that in some cases latex *adds* to

the human readability, but in other cases it detracts, so we want to

balance the elegance of the final pdflatex generated PDF output with

the reality that many will be seeing the docs either in plain text or

improperly rendered HTML. If it can be done easily enough with ascii

math art, we should prefer that.

It's unfortunate that whenever "LaTeX math on the web" gets brought up, MathML

is what everyone thinks of.

I guess someone has to write the docutils code for it, though.
