  1. Mathjax and Pelican II

    I used to prefer writing in reStructuredText more than in Markdown, but I must admit Markdown is quite convenient to use with $\LaTeX$ and Pelican. First of all, there is less need to process escapes, and second, it is possible to use Markdown extensions.

    Le but est de montrer le résultat suivant :

    Si on prend un $n$-uplet d’entiers dont la somme est divisible par $n$, alors on peut ...

  4. MathJax and Pelican

    As you can see, I am using MathJax to display the math formulas in this website, and I find this is very nice, despite the time it can take for you to load it. The big advantage is that the formulas are really rendered closed to the visual style of $\LaTeX$, and are still text (you can select it as any text, it is just an HTML5/CSS rendering with appropriate fonts), and scalable. With a right-click on any formula ...
