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>
