As the core devs get dragged into thinking about Math as an integral part of a virtual learning environment we may at some point progress past having to use Blahtex in the Moodle docs.

Certainly, thanks to nageh and others, the font of MediaWiki has now adopted MathJax as a preference http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Signpost/2012-04-23/Technology_report Among other things that means that one can have Wikipedia parse asciimathML, Tex, MathML, etc.

Efforts have been made to move the Moodle docs and the Moodle forum to a Math-friendly environment andthe response has been glacial, the highpoints being DragMath in the editor (only after Moodle went to 2.0) nd Blahtex in the docs, both far from any bleeding edge and now ancient history.

Bottom line, is whether one says it in ASCIIMathML root(d)(x^{n}) =x^{ n/d } or Maxima ((x^n))^(1/(d))=x^(n/d) it should still come out $$ \sqrt[d]{x^{n}} =x^{ \frac{n}{d} }$$

Time for Moodle to "move on up"......
