Description Fredrik Orderud 2005-10-30 23:08:35 UTC
Math formulas in printed articles does not look good, since they are rasterized
for screen rendering (~100DPI), which is far coarser compared to printers (>300DPI).

Would it be possible to generate equations of higher resolution in the
"printable version" of wiki-articles?

bug 474: Include a PDF button to articles pages ...
bug 3751: Render articles to PDF
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2011-11-28 22:52:42 UTC
With higher-resolution images rendered for high-res displays (bug 32696) we can trigger them in on the print stylesheet as well as for the density media queries (bug 32697).
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2011-11-29 23:59:56 UTC
Replacing dep on bug 32696 (render high-res math images) with bug 32697 (use MathJax). It produces scalable output which is even nicer!
Comment 4 Nicola Soranzo 2011-11-30 10:04:40 UTC
I corrected again the dep, MathJax should be bug 31406.

Comment 6 Brion Vibber 2013-04-22 22:31:26 UTC
Reopening bug 32696 and adding it back; it may be easier to set up the multiple-resolution output with texvc than to get MathJax fully ready to be the default. Particularly for printing, there are problems with MathJax. :(
Comment 7 Peter Krautzberger 2013-04-23 15:26:42 UTC
What kind of problems are you having with MathJax? We're aware of one bug on our side (https://github.com/mathjax/MathJax/issues/386) which will be fixed with the upcoming 2.2 release.

"This bug looks to tweak the size of the images produced by texvc. I think this should simply be a WONTFIX. While it may look nice on his browser, at some scale. The real issue is to get the fonts of the math and the surrounding text to match. That would be a lot f work to make texvc do something like that. Mathml/Mathjax are better suited to these tasks."
^^ I agree with the comment from https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Extension:Math/Roadmap&oldid=901564
