Definitively this is a better way to find the macros.
I think a function like 'preview_rd()' could be useful in mathjaxr
Thanks for all support

Good to hear. I'd suggest this way to find the macros:
browseURL(tools::Rd2HTML(Rd, outfile, macros = system.file("help/macros/mathjax.Rd", package = "mathjaxr")))
so that it works if you use it on a different system that puts the library somewhere else.
