Equation typing machine for the forums

  1. Nov 3, 2003 #1
    I bet this has been suggested before. I was just wondering... On the forums, we write a lot of math equations. It would be a lot more fun and quick and convenient and pretty if we had some sort of equation typing machine for the forums (oooo - with fractions and square roots and integrals). I'm sure if this were easy to create, it would have been done. But what's holding us back?

    I am looking into the LaTeX module for linux.

    Very excellent. I'm looking forward to it.

    Why not replace some of the symbols (pictures) with actual text, such as:

    τ (τ) instead of [tau]
    σ (σ) instead of [sig]
