Can greek letter, math formulation spec added to commonMark

You can use Unicode for Greek letters or HTML (named) character references (vulgo “entities”) like `α`

.

Inline formulas and block equations would be the domain of a future *math extension*, building upon existing conventions.

There have been previous discussions:

Math extensions are widely implemented, but there is unfortunately no consensus on the syntax. If you want to discuss, let’s continue one of the above threads.

Not directing this to you, it’s more of a reminder to us all (or the board admins): maybe it would make sense, to merge these threads or to restart discussion in one, and only one thread per feature / extension

I’m following up on this thread merely because it is the most recent one.

https://github.com/yzhang-gh/vscode-markdown is providing very nice support of math using the `$`

. It doesn’t support `$$`

(display mode).

Yes, just a few days ago, the development version was compatible with GitLab Flavored MarkDown by supporting Markdown+Math.

You can now use vscode to edit locally and view it in the GitLab repository. The only flaw I found is that for performance reasons, GitLab truncates after rendering a thousand characters contained in mathematical formulas on the mobile end.

I very much hope to see GitHub follow up.
