Description:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Grendelkhan/Scratch#Math_oddities.

Wikitext:
:<math>(a) = ba - ab = 0</math>
:<math>a = ba - ab = 0</math>

Output:
<dd><span class="texhtml">(<i>a</i>) = <i>b</i><i>a</i> − <i>a</i><i>b</i> =
0</span></dd>
<dd>a=ba-ab=0</dd>

The variables aren't italicized or spaced properly; it doesn't mix well with
equations which are rendered correctly.

This behavior can be changed using a user's preferences. The behavior is intended.

To display properly spaced multi line formulas, use:
<math>
\begin{array}{lr}

(a) & = ba - ab =  0 \\
a   & = ba - ab =  0

\end{array}
</math>

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
