Math equation support

I'm using MMD 6.6.0 on Windows 10. I installed LaTeX afterward.

I'm trying to get math equations working so I can use Markdown syntax to compose class notes viewable in a browser:

   multimarkdown.exe inputfile.txt > outputfile.html

The math examples aren't working for me:

   \\[ {e}^{i\pi }+1=0 \\]
   $${e}^{i\pi }+1=0$$

gives me:

   \[ {e}^{i\pi }+1=0 \]
   \[{e}^{i\pi }+1=0\]

But subscript and superscript work fine. I'm not sure what's wrong and probably needing to be installed. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

    Sorry for the delay -- this got sent to the spam folder, which I don't check very often.

    Are you using MathJax or some other tool to format math? MultiMarkdown appears to be working properly from what you included, but you need something to format the LaTeX.
