Using mathematical symbols in WIKI pages

We use "mimetex" to produce mathematical formulae (based on terminology). The markup {$ and $} can be used to embed a formula in a wiki page. For example, the markup

{$x^2 + y^2 = z^2$}

produces

More complex formulas can be generated--for example:

{$e^x=\relstack{\rm lim}{n\rightar\infty}$$1+\frac xn$$^n$}

becomes
