Please note that the use of align-style formulae, PSTricks images and TikZ pictures requires the [`latex_formula_renderer` plugin](https://plugins.getnikola.com/v7/latex_formula_renderer/); see below for more information.

To add a QED sign at the end of an environment, use `\qed` inside the environment. This is done automatically for `proof` environments.

Also, the environments have an optional title argument: `\begin{theorem}[Fermat's Last Theorem] ... \end{theorem}`

* Labels `\label{...}` are recognized in some contexts (section headers and theorem environments) and can be refered to with `\ref{...}` or `\ref[Text]{label}`.
* URLs can be inserted with `\url{...}` and hyperlinks with `\href{url}{text}`.
* Short texts in foreign languages can be marked with `\foreignlanguage{language}{text}`.
* Arbitrary unicode symbols can be inserted with `\symbol{...}`, where the decimal representation must be used.
* `\noindent` and `\setlength{...}{...}` are ignored.
* Images can be inserted with `\includegraphics{filename}` or `\includegraphics[...]{filename}`. The optional argument is a comma-separated list of `key=value` pairs, where we support the keys `width`, `height`, and `alt` (for the `<img alt=""` argument in HTML). The width and height values can be of the following forms:
* If the unit ends with `\textwidth` resp. `\textheight`, the value before will be interpreted as a fractional value (or 1 if there is nothing before) and converted to a percent value in HTML output.
* If the unit ends with `cm`, it will be converted to `em` in HTML output.
* Otherwise, the unit will be expected to be a unit-less number and will be taken as pixel size in HTML output.

* Tables can be set with `\begin{tabular}{...} ... \end{tabular}`. Both `\hline` and `\cline{...}` are supported, and the argument of `\begin{tabular}` can consist out of `|`, `l`, `r` and `c`.
* Pictures can be grouped with `\begin{picturegroup} \picture{title}{commands} ... \end{picturegroup}`. The `commands` can be `\includegraphics`, TikZ pictures, PSTricks pictures, etc.

There are two available formulae backends:

* one based on the [`latex_formula_renderer` plugin](https://plugins.getnikola.com/v7/latex_formula_renderer/);
* one based on [MathJax](https://www.mathjax.org/).
* one based on the [`latex_formula_renderer` plugin](https://plugins.getnikola.com/v7/latex_formula_renderer/);
* one based on [MathJax](https://www.mathjax.org/).

You can choose which one by setting the `LATEX_FORMULA_RENDERER` configuration variable; default is `latex_formula_image_renderer`, which is based on the `latex_formula_renderer` plugin. See `conf.py.sample` for more information.

The first plugin allows special features the second doesn't:

* `align` environments (see the [AMSMath documentation](ftp://ftp.ams.org/ams/doc/amsmath/amsldoc.pdf));
* XY-pic diagrams (see the [XY-Pic user guide](http://texdoc.net/texmf-dist/doc/generic/xypic/xyguide.pdf));
* PSTricks graphics (see [here](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PSTricks) for more information);

You need an installed LaTeX distribution for this to work, with some extra tools. See the `latex_formula_renderer` plugin for details.
