NSoiffer added a comment to T237516: Update to MathJax 3.

A few MathJax updates:

  1. They have fixed the accessibility problems.
  2. mhchem is supported in V3, although details have changed.
  3. They just announced V3.0.5 saying they have enough confidence in it to officially announce V3 for general usage.

NSoiffer added a comment to T237516: Update to MathJax 3.

Just a warning that accessibility has changed considerably in V3. I filed a MathJax issue that has some discussion about the inaccessibility of V3 out of the box. If the output is to be accessible, MathML needs to be hidden as was done in V2 and is currently done on wikipedia pages. In V3, the way to include MathML is described here. MathJax may change it's defaults in some configurations based on the inaccessibility as V3 currently exists; definitely check the output for hidden MathML if you switch to V3.

NSoiffer created T153938: Convert Math Template to generate hidden MathML alongside of the "HTML math" that it currently generates.
