I'm sorry but I'm not sure what can be going on, as the notebook does
use mathjax to render its equations as well. The sympy objects simply
return a latex expression that is put into html, and we let mathjax
finish rendering it. So I don't quite understand what differences you
are seeing between the rendering of the notebook and mathjax output
elsewhere.
Perhaps a screenshot of the rendering you consider sub-par would help
us figure it out.
