Visual Editor exploits the new <math display="block"> ...</math> display mode.

Currently this appears center aligned. This conflicts with the convention on the English wikipedia `[citation needed]` which formats maths equations left aligned and indented one space, by using

:<math>...</math>

this gets translated to a <dd> tag.

Ideally we use the same appearance for existing display maths equations and those produced by VE. We can make the display="block" maths appear like the : format using CSS

.mwe-math-fallback-image-display, .mwe-math-mathml-display { margin-left: 1.6em !important; } .mwe-math-mathml-display math { display: inline; }

which I thinks works in PNG/SVG and MathML.

I've discussed that at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback#Indentation_for_mathematical_equations
