LaTeX in blogger

You can type and display LaTeX typesets in your blogs. See this, this, and this. Requirements: Firefox + Greasemonkey and the script from here.

Write LaTeX code, highlight it, and hit the LaTeX icon.

Example: http://www.forkosh.dreamhost.com/mimetex.cgi?sum_%7Bi=1%7D%5En

As can be seen, this doesn’t work because I am relying on the forkosh server to generate the gif image everytime it is called. Guess we are relying on his server. If you have your own server, you can install mimetex.cgi and have your server do the work. However, you have to maintain it for 24/7 uptime.

Another way is this and this (this is a very similar method). However, if this server goes down then my online LaTeX code will also be dead.

Example:

Hmmm, WordPress.com has LaTeX built in, but I’m already using Blogger. Guess I haven’t found a good, viable solution for me yet.
