I found that quote markdown sometimes interferes MathJax.

This is an example that shows how quote markdown can interfere MathJax. $ E > =mc^2$.

Of course it can easily be fixed by removing the leading > as follows

to produce the correct result

This is an example that shows how quote markdown can interfere MathJax. $ E =mc^2$.

However if someone copy a long passage with a lot of MathJax, paste it and press the quote button (or typing the shortcut ctrl+q), there is a chance this problem will occur again in the future. The real case is here.

Should typing ctrl+q or pressing the quote button automatically insert <blockquote>...</blockquote> instead of some lines prefixed by >?

You can it seems quote with

<blockquote>
$E=
mc^2$
</blockquote>
$E= mc^2$

rather than use the leading > if you want to quote a multi-line mathjax expresion
