Adding support for math notation

CS is close enough to math that you tend to get a few questions and answers with equations in them. Also, another topic that would be cool to have a stack exchange site for is math. Based on those, it would be nice to be able to get math formatting.

The problem with math formatting is that a lot of it requires something like rendering LaTeX images (like Wikipedia does), which is expensive on the server side (especially for live editing), or using something like MathML, which some browsers don't support.
