The online help of Cross Validated contains the following part at the LaTeX section: "Learn more: MathJax help."

Problem is, the link leads to a site about TeX, not MathJax. This is not really fortunate, as they're not equivalent; a link like this or this would have been much more helpful here. (The reason why I used the word "misleading" is that it literally says "MathJax" help, yet the link leads to a TeX site.)

    $\begingroup$ Good catch. We could probably improve things by adding a link to math.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/5020/… $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Shog9 Thanks! I didn't know; it seems I'm not the first to mention this issue... $\endgroup$ Jul 2 '19 at 9:29
  • $\begingroup$ Note for future readers, it now links to https://legacy-www.math.harvard.edu/texman/ since the original link no longer exists. $\endgroup$
