Want (La)TeX. 'nuff said.

e.g. Ugly single-line equations

The problem is still here, two months later. I could add some more examples which I've read and written in the meantime, but it seems blatantly obvious that a site for engineers should have better markup for equations than plan text. In fact, it's so obvious that I'm altering the tags on this question to mark it as a bug. The feature exists, it's just not activated, and it's a bug that this site doesn't have [La]TeX.

Test: $\TeX$

We have enabled LaTeX on E&R based on this thread.

Agreed. The ability to write questions and answers with good-looking equations is essential to the professionalism of this site.

This is not a new problem, it's been discussed at the following sites, and probably on others:

$$R1 \parallel R2 = \frac{R_{1}R_{2}}{R_{1}+R_{2}}$$

$$P = IV = I^{2}R = \frac{V^{2}}{R}$$
