#Tex kalite bakımından HTML'den ileri bir yazılımdır.
#Tex yazılımında "<code><nowiki><math>x</math></nowiki></code>" kodlaması matematiksel değişken anlamına gelir. Fakat HTML'de "<code>x</code>" kodlaması herhangi bir anlama gelebilir. Bu yüzden bilgiler daha kolay kaybolabilir.
# TeX has been specifically designed for typesetting formulae, so input is easier and more natural, and output is more aesthetically pleasing.
# One consequence of point 1 is that TeX can be transformed into HTML, but not vice-versa. This means that on the server side we can always transform a formula, based on its complexity and location within the text, user preferences, type of browser, etc. Therefore, where possible, all the benefits of HTML can be retained, together with the benefits of TeX. It's true that the current situation is not ideal, but that's not a good reason to drop information/contents. It's more a reason to [[#Bug_reports|help improve the situation]].
# Another consequence of point 1 is that TeX can be converted to [[w:MathML|MathML]] for browsers which support it, thus keeping its semantics and allowing it to be renderred vectorally.
# When writing in TeX, editors need not worry about whether this or that version of this or that browser supports this or that HTML entity. The burden of these decisions is put on the server. This doesn't hold for HTML formulae, which can easily end up being rendered wrongly or differently from the editor's intentions on a different browser.
