Clearly distinguish math content issues from backend service issues
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Currently, the math extension returns very similar error messages for fairly different issues, which is not helpful for editors. As a result, tasks like T136812 (which are primarily concerned with a backend service issue) get a lot of reports about issues with MathJax / content compatibility.

We should more clearly separate those two cases so that

  • editors know clearly when the issue is with a math construct not being supported in MathJax, or
  • there was a backend service outage.
