LatexRender

Latex is cool. Latex on blogs is an obvious application thereof.

LatexRender is a PHP script that does the usual Latex->ps->image conversion, a la LaTeX2HTML, but on-demand in response to stuff in a post/comment/whatever.

There's some preliminary work on getting it to integrate with DokuWiki, but it's not ready for prime time yet. Pity, since if we're going to be heavily using wiki sites for lab collaboration, this would be handy.
