Formulas in MSN Messenger

  1. Jan 4, 2006 #1
    Does someone know of a good plugin to Messenger allowing for easy math typesetting? For example a plugin which allowed the use of LaTeX codes? Writing math in messenger is certainly a pain, especially because of the smileys (they can be turned off, I know, but anyway : - ). An easy way to write math in Messenger would certainly be nice!

    Can't you just use the little "writing" tab that lets you draw with the mouse and send that?

    Yes, I could... But that isn't exactly easy. It would be much nicer if it was possible to use LaTeX codes. I suppose no one has made a pluging which allows this yet... :-( It exists for the Linux Messenger client GAIM though, but the plugin has not been ported to Windows.
