I think that LaTeX doesn't work on comments. I have made a few tests and I don't see it happening. LaTeX works fine on answers and questions, so I don't think it is a problem with my browser.

So, two questions:

1) Is LaTeX disabled on comments?

2) If it is disabled, why? I think it is inconsistent. This site can potentially include lots of mathematics.

  • @blochwave Maybe it's a problem with my browser. Can anyone report on a recent LaTeX comment? – becko Apr 20 '15 at 15:03
  • From editing-help: "Comments support only bold, italic, code and links". – Jacob Akkerboom Apr 20 '15 at 15:53

    Actually that information is incorrect. It is possible, just surround your expression with dollar signs. Proof. It is just not possible on meta. Here is the same string: Test: $\alpha$. Sorry system – Jacob Akkerboom Apr 20 '15 at 16:01
  • @JacobAkkerboom I see the $\alpha$ on the main site. Apparently it was a temporary issue with my browser and/or proxy or whatever. Thanks. If you post an answer (a simple "No, comments are not disabled on the main site" will do) I'll accept it. – becko Apr 21 '15 at 12:21

No, comments with LaTeX are not disabled on the main site, see my comment above.
