How do I enter functions like max, that Math is unaware of?

Math is aware of a number of standard functions like sin, cos, log, etc. These functions are automatically displayed in lowercase, upright characters as per mathematical conventions (See Typographical conventions in mathematical formulae⁠Wikipedia logo v3.svg).

To display other characters as a function, precede them by the func markup. For example, to display max(a,b), enter

func max(a,b)
