To make it work only when served by a webbrowser, use this:

  <script src="/javascript/mathjax/MathJax.js"></script>

...and make sure javascript-common is installed and in use by the 
web-server (all libjs-* packages should recommend it, and it should be 
enabled by default for apache).

To make it work only offline, use this:

  <script src="file://usr/share/javascript/mathjax/MathJax.js"></script>

To make it work both offline and offline, use this:

  <script src="/usr/share/javascript/mathjax/MathJax.js"></script>

...and edit /etc/apache2/conf-available/javascript-common.conf or 
/etc/lighttpd/conf-available/90-javascript-alias.conf to use 
"/usr/share/javascript/" as base path.

There's a bug about that issue: https://bugs.debian.org/553173

And an old thread: 

Please consider sharing your opinions at either of those places.
