I don't know if this is enabled on other W3C wikis. It is enabled on 
wikipedia and it's quite convenient. I saw the button in the interface 
so I thought it was enabled and I wrote my blurb using <math></math> 
everywhere... If it's not too much of a hassle, we can enable it, 
otherwise I can change the formulas to textual notations.
