The author of this question uses Mathjax (in a way different from its intended usage) to make parts of his question stand out more; for instance, to display some headers in red or to alter the spacing between paragraphs.
I believe this should be edited out, for various reasons:
- it is not proper Markdown syntax
- It breaks screen readers for visually impaired people
- It is ultimately a way to abuse the options offered by the syntax of this website to gain more visibility. If the developers decided that black, non-bold 19px Arial is the normal way to display headers on this website, should I be allowed to override this setting because I want my header to be in red so it stands out more?
I did edit it out, and the edit was reverted by the author because it "lets him get the presentation he wants". I would like to know what the community and the moderators think about this issue.
In other related questions Using MathJax for formating (**bold**, *italics*)? and On using MathJax to create 'white space', it seems like the leading answer mildly discourages this sort of abuse.
