Advanced Editor--Inline questions--more flexibility in formatting requested

Feature idea (LEVEL 1)
Jeremy Walker

Our Geometry teachers have built some nice looking proof questions using the inline, multiple options in the advanced editor:

Type: MT
Options: MaintainOrder,Inline,Multiple

Unfortunately, the HTML formatting and latex equations don't work with the inline, multiple options for a matching question.

They work fine if you're doing a traditional matching style question.

We would like to see the dropdown choices to all have full text formatting and equation rendering capabilities too.

In case it helps for testing purposes, here's the code for a sample question. Obviously this one contains some workarounds that they managed to find, but that limits you to certain questions whereas adding in the requested feature would allow us to do anything that we could do in other types of questions.  You can use the equations from the table as answers choices if you need to replicate how inserting that information "breaks" the question.  I was also able to break it just by using the simple bold commands within the HTML statements.

Type: MT
Options: MaintainOrder,Inline,Multiple
Score: 7, Partial, Round
Groups: F2
