LaTeX: newline after closing $$

The support for ##\LaTeX## is great, but there's just one thing I don't like: if I put a newline after the closing \$$ I get too much vertical space after the rendered part. For instance:
$$(x_1+\ldots+x_p)^n = \sum_{c_1+\ldots+c_p=n} \frac{n!}{c_1!\cdots c_p!}x_1^{c_1}\cdots x_p^{c_p}$$
As you can see, there's a space right above this line.
I think the correct thing to do would be to remove all the superfluous newlines before the opening and after the closing \$$.
Things are even worse if I want to separate ##\LaTeX## formulas from the rest of the text in the source code:

$$(x_1+\ldots+x_p)^n = \sum_{c_1+\ldots+c_p=n} \frac{n!}{c_1!\cdots c_p!}x_1^{c_1}\cdots x_p^{c_p}$$

Now I also have a space before the rendered formula.

This is possibly because we do not use LaTeX but MathJax. Just don't insert extra empty lines! In any case the library we use is ready made, so that we have no influence on the source code.

I insert empty lines because it makes it easier for me to write and especially edit parts of my posts before posting them. Well, I'll live with that. I just wanted to make sure you were aware of this issue. Could you tell me the name of the library?

I do it this way:

<text>
$$
<formula>
$$ <text>

which doesn't produce extra lines and is equally easy to edit and read.

One line test for comparison:
<text>$$<formula>$$<text>
