## TeX comes to WordPress!

I just noticed that WordPress has added Tex support. This will make my life a lot simpler, and it may even work in the comments. Now to go back and change all the G to $G$ and so on. Fun!

2. But, I and maybe some others use your RSS feed, in a browser that (most likely) doesn’t support TeX. So, I saw:

“Now to go back and change all the G to and so on. Fun!”

I wonder how hard it’d be to make Sage do TeX? Hm.

3. Your browser shouldn’t have to support anything. The code above is

`Now to go back and change all the <i>G</i> to <img src='http://l.wordpress.com/latex.php?latex=G&bg=e6e6e6&fg=000000&s=0' alt='G' title='G' class='latex' /> and so on.`

That is, it’s rendering these things to images. It might be that the RSS reader or feed doesn’t like to call latex.php all the time to get those embedded images.

And for the people who are so hardc0re as to be using a non-graphical browser in this day and age, they can read the raw TeX in the alt text.
