# Where is the math markdown/syntax described?

When I begin asking a question, no mention is made of the markdown syntax in use, or where to find its description in the quick reference, or full reference for the Math Stackexchange site in the right hand column.

Where do I find these?

• You can get a description of the Markdown syntax by clicking the little orange question mark at the top right of the question box. The mathematical markup is TeX, for which some good references are mentioned in the answers to this meta question. Also, please post questions related to the site itself on meta instead. – Rahul Nov 14 '10 at 7:00
