- Callback Queue
- MathJax uses Queues to synchronize its activity so that
actions that operate asynchronously (like loading files) will
be performed in the right order. Callback functions
are pushed onto the queue, and are performed in order, with
MathJax handling the synchronization if operations need to
wait for other actions to finish.
- Callback Signal
Like an event handler, but it also keeps a history of
messages. Your code can register an “interest” in a signal,
or can register a callback to be called when a
particular message is sent along the signal channel.

allowing MathJax to remain compatible across all browsers.
- MathJax’s input and output processors are called “jax”, as is
