I went back to <http://www.mathjax.org/docs/1.1/start.html> where I
had read about the issue:

And, of course, sure enough, there it was, script and all. What
happened of course is that when I see "configuration" my eyes glaze
over. So thanks for waking me up because MathAjax is truly the best
thing to happen for a long time and now it is even better.
Grateful regards
