# Any LaTeX formatting?

Why can't I use LaTeX formatting on this site like I can on other stack exchange site ? More specifically, can I insert the degree symbol?

• To the best of my knowledge, there's only one SE site that supports LaTeX and that's Math. I don't even think that the LaTeX SE supports LaTeX formatting. Nov 27 '10 at 5:06
• I don't think it is presently necessary here, HTML works. For the record the list of sites includes at least stats, math, cstheory and physics. Nov 27 '10 at 13:59
• Aaronut: Physics supports it too. Dec 12 '10 at 2:28

Why would you need LaTeX for inserting a degree symbol? Just use the html entity: &deg;= °
