# Can we use MathJax in comments?

Can we write MathJax commands in comments (and in chat)? If not, I believe we should add such a feature...

• Hmm. Works on the regular site. – HDE 226868 Dec 13 '14 at 0:22
• MathJax/Latex does not work on the Meta side of this site – Kyle Kanos Dec 13 '14 at 3:02

• By way of explanation, the MathJax script runs after the web page loads. It replaces any sequences of the form $...$ or $$...$$ or so on with rendered math; the script doesn't even know whether any such sequence is part of a comment, a post, the sidebar, etc. (code blocks are a special exception) – David Z Dec 13 '14 at 5:57
