MathJax [1] is now enabled site-wide as an opt-in preference. You can now see beautifully rendered, accessible, copy&pasteable and standard-compliant (MathML) formulas on Wikipedia, replacing the old TeX-rendered PNGs.

To enable MathJax on Wikipedia or any other Wikimedia project, go to your preferences > Appearance > Math and select "MathJax (experimental; best for most browsers)". A big thanks to the MathJax developers and all the folks who helped deploy it. [2]
