#' Render TeX in a plotly graph using MathJax
#' 
#' This function makes it slightly easier to render TeX in a plotly graph --
#' it ensures that MathJax is included with the final result and also
#' ensures the provided string is surrounded with `$` (this is what plotly.js
#' uses to declare a string as TeX).
