mathjax CDN is going away

Description

According to this announcement:

https://www.mathjax.org/cdn-shutting-down/

we will all soon be reading raw latex in the help documents, even when we are not on a plane. Short term solution is to host a copy ourselves, updating the sphinx build appropriately.

Longer term, need to replace mathjax with katex, which is faster and smaller and easier to bundle with the application. This is closer to working on Qt than it is in wx.
