    5 The dialog title says "Mathematics in TeX". The same text is repeated just above the <textarea>.
    6 The dialog should probably link to TeX documentation, to educate the user about the syntax?
    7 Why not get rid of the dialog all together? As soon as the cursor reaches a MathJax widget, the formula itself could be displayed *right there*, and the user would be able to edit it. No need for a dialog. Direct manipulation. Of course, that would mean the user won't get a preview. But a preview is only really necessary for more complex formulas. So why not allow double-clicking the widget to get a dialog, otherwise in-place editing?
    8 If you don't do that, there's little reason to use a Widget for this, isn't there? Widgets are about removing the need for dialogs (out-of-place editing) where possible, aren't they.
