# Wikidot's LaTeX

## Using LaTeX with Wikidot

Wikidot pages will parse and display LaTeX code. See the math section of the Wikidot syntax guide.

### Example

A famous equation is \$E = mc^2\$.

````A famous equation is [[\$E = mc^2\$]].`
```

Actually, the speed of light (in a vacuum) is a constant so "technically":

````A famous equation is [[\$E = m\textrm{c}^2\$]].`
```

A famous equation is \$E = m\textrm{c}^2\$.

### Limitations

Wikidot renders LaTeX by producing and displaying graphics files, which may not appear particularly sharp when printed. Also, I do not believe that the font used can be changed. The rather plain-looking Computer Modern (I believe) is the default.
