[Mediawiki-l] <math> - localised rendering of functions

Hi Jakub,

I think <math> functions are predominantly handled through texvc in  
the math/ path, a separate interpreter that passes information to  
latex, dvips and such. To solve this, I think you may have to deal  
with upstream (i.e. tetex) software, dealing with their specific  
localization routines. However, while that may not be helpful  
information, I hope it points you in the right direction, and I do  
hope someone can point  you to a more elegant solution.
