* LaTeX* notation in website content can be re-formatted automatically with the

*JavaScript library. This can create visually formatted math expressions that are compatible with most browsers and screen readers.*

**MathJax**## Copy LaTeX notation from MS Word Equations

## Add MathJax script to your webpage

For Cascade pages, include the MathJax.js asset from the global site.

Before MathJax can work to transform LaTeX, you must mark each piece of math notation.

### Inline Layout: \\( ... \\)
