With a little grunt work one can download MathJax to a local directory,
and include it instead of using the cdn url. That's the way I did for
set of notes on trigonometry. I remember that I couldn't figure out
how to change the headers from within Scribble. So I just ran an
sed after to adjust the headers to include the local copy of MathJax.
