Does that mean you have to implement latex parsing by yourself ?

Ok, thanks. I thought this was done for numpy, but I guess not.

I don't think I am entitled to make any decision here: I have no
knowledge of the stack involved here. I can only confirm than using
sphinx 0.5 (the dev version) does work for latex constructs; I could not
make the JS backend work, but again, I know nothing about web frameworks
and co, and I guess setting up a webserver for this to work to be
trivial for anyone who knows his stuff here.
