Transparency seems okay in Firefox (1.0.7).

I've had trouble with .png transparency in IE before. The only way i got around that was by using transparent .gifs. I know MimeTex converts to .gif, but it's not my favorite converter as it doesn't use very smooth (vector?) characters but it takes in Latex at the command line directly, rather than reading from a file which i found very useful. An alternative would be to set the background color to the background color of these forums, but since you have different styles for the PF layout that might not work. Sounds like a pain.
Actually, i just found out MimeTex can be compiled with antialiasing on.

From googling, these commandline options might worth playing with: dTextAlphaBits=4 dGraphicsAlphaBits=4 dNOPLATFONTS ...just a thought.

So, I just want to stick an "alpha" in the angle by the point marked O, why is the Latex source for this image invalid?

Just an aside, for those who'd like to have LaTeX on their computer http://http://www.artofproblemsolvin..._Downloads.phpis the place to get it! The whole package is about 400MB.

Miktex has all kinds of packages available for download. In order to use these packages must i specifically indicate which to use in the latex code or is there an option to just use all available?

You won't want to use all available. It is unnecessary and there are package conflicts. You cannot use xypic with Paul Taylor's diagrams package for instance. Plus there are some packages that require their own
\usepackage command and yet others must appear after other packages in the preamble as well.
