Summary[edit]

TeX logo
This image shows some kind of formula that could be converted to TeX. The MediaWiki TeX interpreter generates either PNG images or simple HTML markup, depending on user preferences and the complexity of the expression. In future, as more browsers are smarter, it will be able to generate enhanced HTML or even MathML in many cases. Storing formulas as images makes it harder to change them. TeX also helps making sure that they all use the same font and size.
A replacement has been proposed:

In your article, replace the image with:

<math>\sqrt{ \frac{a}{b} }</math>

Description

to be used on the LaTeX wikibook. I created with the following LaTeX source:

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}

% New definition of square root:
% it renames \sqrt as \oldsqrt
\let\oldsqrt\sqrt
% it defines the new \sqrt in terms of the old one
\def\sqrt{\mathpalette\DHLhksqrt}
\def\DHLhksqrt#1#2{\setbox0=\hbox{$#1\oldsqrt{#2\,}$}\dimen0=\ht0
\advance\dimen0-0.2\ht0
\setbox2=\hbox{\vrule height\ht0 depth -\dimen0}%
{\box0\lower0.4pt\box2}}

\begin{document}

\begin{displaymath}
\sqrt{ \frac{a}{b} } \quad \oldsqrt{ \frac{a}{b} }
\end{displaymath}

\end{document}
