We are indebted to member and former admin chroot -- whose efforts brought LaTeX to Physics Forums in the first place -- and forum admin and owner Greg Bernhardt for updating to the currently-used MathJax processor. Numerous other members have provided valuable feedback and helped with the debugging process.
