> <m>$x$</m> should work (and do does <em>x</em> )

As does
<display>&tex('$ x$','x')</display>-axis 

<tex>$ x$-axis</tex><web>x-axis</web>
<tex>\( x\)-axis</tex><web>x-axis</web>

But this does bring up a more interesting question, should <display>
(and <tex>/<web>) be doing what it is doing here, meaning it is
currently doing the variable value replacement on the results of the
<display>, <tex> and <web> tags.

Should it be doing this? (I can make it stop, but I am not sure it is
a good idea.)

Is anyone using this effect?

Is anyone annoyed by this effect?

<display>$x=4;&tex('$x$','x')</display> should this put out 4$ or $x$
in the tex file?
