I noticed that www-math@w3.org did not copy the link in my previous response. So, I'm hardcoding the link here. Questions was answered here: https://stackoverflow.com/a/44323342/1232087 Thanks.

Following html page with MathJax javascript displays LaTeX expression as a plain text: (x^2+1).
Question: How can we modify it to display it as a plain text: $$x^2+1$$
Note: You can copy/paste the following content on a notepad and save it as an .html file to test what I'm after.
$$\text{(x^2+1)}$$
