Extracted from #11298

Currently MathJax supports only inline equations. It would be nice if block equations were supported as well.

Additionally plugins should detect what sort of equation it is dealing (probably based on brackets used).

What's the difference between inline and block equations? What's wrong with inline equation inside <p> if it is its only child?

It would be nice to have support for MathJax block equations. In the first version we wanted to keep this plugin simple and widget which can be inline or block is not that simple so we decided to drop block support at the begging.

MathJax behave differently in inline and block. In inline it try to keep everything as small as the line is, so if you put very complex equation in inline mode it will be very small. Block equation behave differently. It can take as much space as it needs to create big and beauty equation. It would be good to support both.

OK, so it makes sense.

In need of this as well, I've created a pull request for this. Not sure if that goes in line with you're aiming for on the plugin.
