[IPython-User] Pretty rendering of docstrings

Hello,

Is there any plan for IPython notebook to support pretty rendering of
docstrings?

Take for instance:

http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy/reference/generated/numpy.random.lognormal.html

Sphinx puts a nice rendered equation (probably via MathJax), right below:

"The probability density function for the log-normal distribution is"

and the layout of documentation is quite neat.

Sage notebook also renders the equation fine. Can this be supported in
IPython notebook?

I am particularly interested in equation rendering, since I am planning to
insert latex representation of the equations in function docstrings.

Thanks.
