Just opening that bug for the record and if some volunteers want to help... The basic idea will would be to integrate a small TeX/ASCII-to-MathML converter like http://www1.chapman.edu/~jipsen/mathml/asciimath.html to generate MathML client side when editing a page. More advanced editing features could be helpful like improving the WYSIWYG editor. This is the huge task of the old bug 78128 ; some UI could be added to MDN to insert basic constructions. It would also be possible to allow a simple syntax in the source and doing the MathML conversion server side, but that would be a bit more involved and so should be addressed in a separate bug.
There is a plugin for CKEditor4 to cover this in https://github.com/r-gaia-cs/CKEditor-TeXZilla (demo at http://www.ime.unicamp.br/~ra092767/ck-texzilla). I still have to test it with Kuma and maybe backport it to the CKEditor version that Kuma use. The plugin make use of Frédéric's parse: https://github.com/fred-wang/TeXZilla.
Update: The patch for Kuma was accept: https://github.com/mozilla/kuma/pull/2038. Waiting the new version of Kuma be made public to close this bug.
