Wait, but I just showed how with vanilla ddoc you can immediately use
mathjax to do better than adrdox. No need for any pre/postprocessing
or scripting, just one line of import.



mathjax IS postprocessing via scripting. And better is extremely
dubious as it is unreliable and slow for the end user...


Yes. I opened the link [1] by Andrei into a new tab, saw some latex
source code, wondered what was the point, closed the tab, and remained
confused. Only later did I find out that it was supposed render it by
javascript. It was way too slow.

Yah, the whole page is exclusively rendered math, and difficult too. A good benchmark for the rendering engine :o). -- Andrei
