Code: Select all

`<math xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML"><mfrac><mrow><mi mathvariant="italic">a</mi><mi mathvariant="italic">b</mi></mrow><mrow><mi mathvariant="italic">a</mi><mi mathvariant="italic">b</mi></mrow></mfrac></math>`

That is the output from MSFT Equation version 4, this program is free

So any suggestions on how to fix the wordpress block to recognize this as valid?

What is it blocking? Maybe add a custom shortcode or something.

I tried a a chunk of code and WP installed a new Gutenberg block but that is the extent of it. Microsoft Equation is very old now. So is MathML.

https://wordpress.org/plugins/mathml-block/
This the plugin that Gutenberg was programmed to grab

\begin{bmatrix} a \\ b \end{bmatrix}

is an example of the code that works as desired, notice no mathml tags but yet this is described as mathml

so i griped for manual as the syntax is different

Turns out that Latex is the syntax used so the MathML is misidentified with Wordpress. JetPack has Latex support for self hosted hosts.
