 it would be great to have some support for mathematic equations in talks and present. an obvious candidate would be MathJAx:

 This was asked in the past: #17978 Does the solution suggested here: #17978 (comment) work for you?

### robpike commented Mar 28, 2018

 Please let's keep present's input language very simple.

 @ALTree I tried the solution provided in #17978 but when I try to visit it via talks.godoc.org: https://talks.godoc.org/github.com/sbinet/talks/2018/2018-03-28-matheq/talk.slide I get: \$> curl https://talks.godoc.org/github.com/sbinet/talks/2018/2018-03-28-matheq/talk.slide Internal server error.  Locally, it works, though. (but in my field, CERN, High Energy Physics, we do like to be able to upload presentations to a central server or at least a link to another repository serving the presentation. for science! :P) maybe some protection against HTML injection in talks.godoc.org ?

 “Internal server error.” sounds like a talks.godoc.org bug of some sort.

 @sbinet as an interim/alternative, you could use my (very alpha) GopherJS version of present: http://blog.myitcv.io/gopherjs_examples_sites/present/?url=https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sbinet/talks/master/2018/2018-03-28-matheq/talk.slide&hideAddressBar=true Very happy to continue a discussion about that offline from here (Slack etc)

 I still don't think we're going to do this. I don't see anything that's changed since the prior decision to keep present simple. You're welcome to maintain a fork of a more featureful version of present, but it's not something we have much time to maintain.

 I am ok with present not having a special syntax baked in. but could the talks.godoc.org issue be solved so mathjax could be used?
