# AsciiDoctor math mode seems broken

When typing math expressions in wiki using the Asciidoc mode, the math expressions are left unprocessed.

Example: typing a_1 \leq a_2 remains unprocessed. Am I not typing these the right way? Am I missing something?

Hi,

I haven’t used Asciidoc much but I’ve tried to search a bit for the specific mathematical expressions.

This snippet seems to work (but not in the preview renderer which still uses Markdown).

:stem: latexmath

stem:[2+2]

[stem]
++++
2+2
++++

Inline math stem:[\sqrt{4} = 2]



Question is whether this LaTex syntax works for you? Which math expression syntax are you using in your example?

Cheers,
Michael
