What is the software used by MO to "render" Latex? Is it an outside solution or a software that has been written specifically? Interesting is that I understand that it doesn't produce images but texts with "sophisticated" fonts.

Thanks for your answer.

This site uses MathJax to display mathematical formulas. MathJax is an open source Javascript library, so this is an external solution.

Stack Exchange is a MathJax partner and recently donated $20,000 to support MathJax development. SE also tests beta versions of new MathJax releases on the Math.SE site. So while the library itself is independent, SE does support the development.
