Math not highlighted with `==`

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open any text file in Obsidian.
  2. Type some text with a math equation (MathJax) somewhere in it.
  3. Surround the text with == to make it highlighted.


==Sample text $R^n$ Sample text $Sample \space math$ Sample text==

Expected result

The math equation is also highlighted.

Actual result

The math equation is not highlighted, stays the same.

Supporting highlighting inside MathJax is of course crazy. But support for highlighting whole MathJax expressions seems like a reasonable possibility.
