# Convert Latex to MathJax-HTML

Is there any tool that can convert Latex documents to HTML documents, so that all math is presented with MathJax?

(Obviously, it is fairly easy to hack together a quick Perl script that is able to do a crude conversion, but I am interested in a bit more robust solutions — at least it should get all cross-references right automatically.)

You can use TeX4ht. It can output math as mathml which can be then displayed with mathjax. You can also configure html header to load mathjax script from mathjax's cdn:

\Preamble{xhtml,mathml}
\Configure{VERSION}{}
\Configure{DOCTYPE}{\HCode{<!DOCTYPE html>\Hnewline}}
\Configure{HTML}{\HCode{<html>\Hnewline}}{\HCode{\Hnewline</html>}}
(http://www.cse.ohio-state.edu/\string~gurari/TeX4ht/)" />\Hnewline}}
rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
href="\expandafter\csname aa:CssFile\endcsname" />\Hnewline}}
src="http://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest/MathJax.js?config=TeX-AMS-MML_HTMLorMML"\Hnewline
></script>\Hnewline}}
.MathJax_MathML {text-indent: 0;}\Hnewline
</style>\Hnewline}}
\begin{document}
\EndPreamble


With this config file, we request to output math as mathml, then configure html header so resulting file is html5. Save it as for example ht5mjlatex.cfg and then call from command line:

htlatex filename.tex "ht5mjlatex.cfg, charset=utf-8" " -cunihtf -utf8"


or you can use William F. Hammond's script (at bottom of the page)

And this has the advantage that browsers that can display MathML (natively or via a plugin) can avoid the necessity of loading MathJaX. –  Loop Space Aug 27 '12 at 7:27
This is certainly better than nothing, but I would prefer to keep the HTML source code somewhat readable. Very simple equations seem to produce dozens of lines of mathml markup... –  Jukka Suomela Aug 27 '12 at 23:07
