LaTeX does not work in polls but works in preview

Preview:

Actual result:

This is a very minor bug, of course, but still, I think it’s worth reporting.

I don’t think it is really a bug. Latex does not work from within many environments, if I remember from when I was playing around with it here in the past.
Their system creates little images for the latex and inserts them onto the page. Probably those little images aren’t supported in the HTML environment that makes the polls.
That would be my guess. :slightly_smiling_face:

As always, you have a very good point. :slightly_smiling_face:
However,

  1. Why does it work in the preview then?
  2. I’m not 100% sure, but if I remember correctly, LaTeX used to work initially and then stopped after some of the updates.

Yes, this appears to be the case. Trunk is correct. Is it a flaw, or a feature?
