# Are picture environments not allowed in MathJax?

In a WordPress blog post of mine I used the following LaTeX code:

$\setlength{\unitlength}{1cm} \begin{picture}(8,6)\thicklines \put(1,1){\line(3,4){3}} \put(4,5){\line(3,-4){3}} \put(1,1){\line(1,0){6}} \put(2.3,3.2){\textit{b}} \put(5.7,3.1){\textit{a}} \put(3.8,0.5){\textit{c}} \put(4,2.7){\textit{S}} \put(0.6,0.5){\textit{A}} \put(7.1,0.5){\textit{B}} \put(3.8,5.3){\textit{C}} \end{picture}$


to draw a triangle. I tried to do the same in this answer but it didn't parse.

Question: Is this feature not allowed/supported?

Added: From the Willie Wong's comment to J. M.'s answer it seems this is due to the existing design of the system. Is that so?
