To make a numbered equation in Pandoc, I defer to using pure LaTeX:

```
\begin{equation}
a^2 + b^2 = c^2
\end{equation}
```

In PDF form, it gives a nice numbered equation, however, this equation doesn't show up at all in the HTML output because the equation is within the `\begin`

environment and is ignored. I would like to keep the numbering in the PDF, but would like the equation to show up in the HTML, with or without the numbering.

An extension exists on github: pandoc-crossref

installit withor in archlinux using ArchHaskell

you can

Alternatively, as described in https://github.com/jgm/pandoc/issues/1938#issuecomment-74011358 you can use`--mathjax`

for HTML renderingif your equations are in

`math.txt`

create a file

`header`

and compile with
