Hello All,

I am wondering if there has ever been any discussion/consideration given to incorporating MathJax (or something similar) into R for rendering equations in .Rd files. I know that equations are rendered beautifully in the pdf manuals, but I suspect the majority of users primarily look at the html help files when using R. While I am comfortable reading something like "B_x(a,b) = integral_0^x t^(a-1) (1-t)^(b-1) dt", it would definitely be nicer if this was shown as a 'proper' equation.

Best,
Wolfgang
