The backticks that were used to circumvent MathJax problems on MO 1.0 were removed in questions and answers.

However, it appears that the comments were not affected by this fix and thus display MathJax as code, see for instance here, here or here.

Would it be possible to remove those backticks that were used on MO 1.0 to fix rendering issues?

I'm not sure whether it's all fixed in questions & answers either:

positive elements in tensor products

This one has a backticked

\[ ... \]

construct. Replacing the backticks helps but doesn't completely solve the issue; apparently some parts of these constructs end up in textmode anyway, for whatever reason (e. g., remove the backticks from his first matrix and you'll see that the "a=" part is still textmode).

    $\begingroup$ Thanks for pointing that out. I think the construct should be \\[ ... \\] in order to disambiguate the displayed math environment from an escaped opening bracket. Doing this, the preview looks fine. $\endgroup$
