It seems the thing that confuses it most is the mathtt call.  If I
remove it altogether (and using \\\ for line separators), then I can
use y_{3, 4} and t_{i, j} no problem.  Or, if there are no complex
subscripts, the mathtt call by itself is OK.  But there's something
very brittle inside that is messing up mathjax's processing of this.

Filed it here, b/c I'm out of ideas:
