Okay, I will.  :-)

Personally, math isn't all that important to me.  To my users though, it's
another story entirely.  Grad students would love to be able to include
formulas on their home pages, TAs (Teaching Assistants) would be overjoyed
at the prospect of being able to include equations directly in their online
pages instead of resorting to inlined GIFs or Word documents, and so on.

Considering the origins of HTML & the Web, I'm amazed that this hasn't been
there from the beginning.
