Options for including mathematics on your website include:

The Nift documentation covers how to display $\LaTeX$ on your websites using MathJax. Repeating the information on this page, using MathJax on your site is as simple as adding the following code to the head of each page:

<!-- uses MathJax CDC for LaTeX support
	 see http://docs.mathjax.org/en/latest/start.html for more info -->
<script type="text/x-mathjax-config">
	MathJax.Hub.Config
	({
		extensions: ["tex2jax.js"],
		jax: ["input/TeX", "output/HTML-CSS"],
		tex2jax: 
		{
			inlineMath: [['$','$'], ['\\(','\\)']],
			displayMath: [ ['$$','$$'], ["\\[","\\]"] ],
			processEscapes: true
		},
		"HTML-CSS": { availableFonts: ["MathJax TeX"] }
	});
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" 
		src="https://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest/MathJax.js">
</script>

If you want to insert a dollar sign on a page, as opposed to opening/closing an inline equation, use \\\$ and MathJax will escape the character.

Note: if you are opening a page locally and are not connected to the internet then MathJax will not load, you will simply see the unprocessed LaTeX equations.
