    LaTeX in Blogger

    For some time my preferred blogging site has been WordPress because it supports LaTeX, well now there is an effective means of including LaTeX on Blogger (or any site that allows HTML and JavaScript).

    The trick is to include some java-script to call the LaTeX system provided by MathJax

    Include the code:

    <script src="http://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest/MathJax.js?config=TeX-AMS-MML_HTMLorMML" type="text/javascript">
    </script>

    At the top of a post in the HTML editor then LaTeX can be included between the delimiters \( \) for in-line LaTeX and between \[ \] for display LaTeX.

    If you have admin privileges you can of course install MathJax on your own server instead.

    Maybe I am misunderstanding your question, but why can't you apply this to wordpress? It allows you to use HTML, no?

    You can, though I have not tried it. But why would you when wordpress has LaTeX already, and it must be better not to go outside for LaTeX rendering (especially since MathJax does this at every view as it does not create images which are stored).
