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 and so on. Fun!

About this weblog
This is mainly an expository blath, with occasional highlevel excursions, humorous observations, rants, and musings. The mainline exposition should be accessible to the “Generally Interested Lay Audience”, as long as you trace the links back towards the basics. Check the sidebar for specific topics (under “Categories”).
I’m in the process of tweaking some aspects of the site to make it easier to refer back to older topics, so try to make the best of it for now.

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.

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 nongraphical browser in this day and age, they can read the raw TeX in the alt text.
