# [Bug 61051] MathJax equations are centered

https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=61051

--- Comment #2 from Peter Krautzberger <peter.krautzber...@mathjax.org> ---
This is caused by a custom MathJax extension used in the MediaWiki Math
Extension, wiki2jax,
https://git.wikimedia.org/blob/mediawiki%2Fextensions%2FMath/ff83048597fb256c2579f16ddcd982ef2ae75460/modules%2FMathJax%2Funpacked%2Fextensions%2Fwiki2jax.js.
That custom extension contains a simple heuristic (part of the ConvertMath
function) to identify display style equations.

IIUC that's simply due to the :$...$ hack which the community
adopted because the math extension lacks support for display style -- see
display-style math layout is centered.

I think you opened a discussion about community preference on the WikiProject
Math page, too. So perhaps it's best to wait until there's a more definitive
response.

Physikerwelt will correct me, but once Math extension 2.0 is ready, the
heuristic would also apply to the default image rendering.

Peter.
