Math Formula in WordPress vs Blogspot

Refering to How to write Math Formulas on Blogspot / Blogger, Blogspot is also capable of rendering beautiful Math Equations based on LaTeX.

Blogger uses MathJax for rendering the Math Formulas, which look like the ones shown above.

Let’s try the WordPress version and readers can judge for themselves which is better.

\displaystyle a^p \equiv a \pmod p

\displaystyle\int_0^{\frac{\pi}{2}} \sin x\ dx=1

My personal opinion is: they look the same to be honest. However, the Blogger way of typing is much more convenient, just using $ and $$, as opposed to WordPress requiring “$latex” and “$latex\displaystyle”, which is more cumbersome especially for long texts. However, experts like Terence Tao have opted for WordPress, which shows that WordPress does probably have some advantages.
