If you decide to switch in future, individual equations will either
work, or they won't.
A nice option for Mac users is the LaTeX equation editor:
Type the equation into the window, press LaTeX and it calls
LaTeX to generate the equation -- if it looks right, copy and
paste into the wiki, confident that LaTeX will handle it.
Plus you get an image you can use in other places.
