      First, I would like to say thank you so much for what you do!  I teach chemistry and your team has been instrumental in helping me to create engaging and interactive content online.  My goal is to include symbols and equations in H5P content.


      1. Before upgrading to Moodle 3.9+, only mod_hvp was available.  I uploaded the MathDisplay library 1.0.5 and was able to inlcude symbols and equations through LaTeX in Course Presentation text, multiple choice, drag and drop, etc (I have not been able to use mhchem as I am in other parts of Moodle, however)  After upgrading to Moodle 3.9+, both mod_hvp and mod_h5pactivity (through the Content Bank) are available.  The mod_hvp works as before, however, when I try LaTeX in mod_h5pactivity, it does not work/display.  I've tried this in the course and site Content banks with no luck.  Thank you in advance for your help.
