LaTeX recognition added to Canvas text fields

LaTeX equations can now be added in any text field in Canvas -- including in title fields, for example -- and will be typeset and processed by MathJax. Previously, LaTeX could only be added via a tool in the Rich Content Editor (which has been retained), and only in the body of a course page.

Text fields support MathJax delimiters to identify equations.
