We need Tex markup…

Can we have the option of rendering particular snippets of (La)TeX code? I think it would greatly help beginners with associating commands with the expected output. For example (forgive my example, I'm a beginner):

code here
code here
code here

The last line causes the paragraph to indent too much to the right, which looks ugly.

Having an on-the-fly LaTeX parser would allow us to see what the asker or answerer sees firsthand. The author can choose which part of the code to parse.

I imagine a two-column layout where the left side displays the code in this style, and the right side displays the output. Repeatedly seeing a command with the expected output can help in drilling down the basics.

Very much in favour of this. Other Stack Exchange sites already have this. I think it was already enabled here once, but was disabled due to problems. I don’t recall what these problems were, though.
