While going though the new tags, I spotted, that the was created, which eventually brought me back to the endeavour of tagging functional groups in general. (Should we create tags for common functional groups?)

While I was editing a couple of questions, to include , I noticed that MathJax is not rendered in the pop-up. (I am very sorry for not adding hand drawn circles here.)

On the Wiki page itself everything works as expected.

I would still think that it is a good thing to exclude MathJax from the Tag Wiki excerpts.
What is your opinion?

  • $\begingroup$ I'd say there's a bug here: I'm just not sure whether the bug is that MathJax doesn't work in the pop-ups, or that it does work for the excerpt on the tag wiki page. Either way, it should be consistent. $\endgroup$ Aug 17, 2015 at 9:48

I agree that it should be removed. I was the one who created the nitro-compounds tag and the wiki to go with it. I wasn't aware that MathJax didn't render in the excerpt popup but if I was then I wouldn't have used it. It doesn't seem essential to convey the meaning; it just makes it look a bit nicer.
