From the webpage:

  • Fast: KaTeX renders its math synchronously and doesn’t need to reflow the page.
  • Print quality: KaTeX’s layout is based on Donald Knuth’s TeX, the gold standard for math typesetting.
  • Self contained: KaTeX has no dependencies and can easily be bundled with your website resources.
  • Server side rendering: KaTeX produces the same output regardless of browser or environment, so you can pre-render expressions using Node.js and send them as plain HTML.

Is it just a matter of time before someone implements TeX in JS and we have a typographic solution for the Web?

I first saw this in a tweet by John Resig.
