# HowTos:Add TeX to your webpage

This HowTo provides basic instructions on how to add TeX based formulas to your webpages located on the math webserver by using MathJax.

## Introduction

The main math webserver as well as the cgi webserver have the MathJax package installed on them and you can very easily use it to add TeX based formulas/text to your webpages hosted on math webservers.

MathJax is a javascript based software that can interpret TeX/LaTeX formulas embedded in your webpage and replace them with fonts and images to make them look as close as possible to the TeX/LaTeX output. You can find extensive information about MathJax on MathJax homepage. Here we will just suggest a few quick ways to use it, for more extensive information check jsMath website.

## Quick Start

To get started insert the following html code somewhere in the <head> section of your webpage:

<SCRIPT SRC="/mathjax/MathJax.js"> MathJax.Hub.Config({ extensions: ["tex2jax.js","TeX/AMSmath.js","TeX/AMSsymbols.js"], jax: ["input/TeX","output/HTML-CSS"], tex2jax: {inlineMath: [["$","$"],["\\(","\\)"]], processEscapes: true} }); </SCRIPT>

This code will make sure MathJax is loaded if and only if you use LaTeX style formulas somewhere in the body of your document. That means that the following text:

\( f(\alpha) = x+\beta \)

will get translated into inline formula as in: \( f(\alpha)=x+\beta \) - note how there is a small delay before the text gets converted into formulas. For displayed equations you can do:

\[ \int_alpha^\beta x = \mathbb{A} \]

which gets translated like this: \[ \int_\alpha^\beta x = \mathbb{A} \]
