# Wikipedia:texvc

(Redirected from Texvc)
The [itex] tag of MediaWiki's wiki code is used for mathematical formulas and similar content. It may be rendered either on the server side (with Math extension which uses texvc) or on the client side (for example, with MathJax). The aim is to allow a single syntax for math markup while providing protection against potential security issues. In addition, texvc provides some extensions to standard AMSLaTeX, such as \codes for HTML math character entities (for example, &Sigma;\Sigma) which have different names in LaTeX.
