[LON-CAPA-users] Evaluation of variable in tex mode

Howdy Guy,

to prevent breaking problems, don't change the current behavior.

Instead, add the eval parameter for <tex> <web> and <display>
tags, which acts exactly like the eval parameter for <m> tag.
Only the default value of the parameter will be "on" for these
three, instead of "off" as it is for <m> (i think?).

So if someone really wants no variable interpolation, they can do
  <display eval="off">&tex('$x$','x')</display>

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