Folks, There is a sticky thread in another forum that shows how you can embed fancy LaTeX-based equations in your forum posts. That functionality seems really beneficial to the math & physics forum so I'm linking to the other thread here. Here is a link to that thread: LaTeX - math equations support? There is another service available that can also do this. Here is an example using the other service: And the HTML code to put in your post for that example is:
<img src="http://www.forkosh.dreamhost.com/mimetex.cgi?\int_{-\infty }^{\infty }e^{-x^{2}}\;dx=\sqrt{\pi }"/>

(Personally I find the image generated by the service mentioned in the other thread to be a bit prettier.]

You may use the eqn tag and wrap it around single or multi-line LaTeX formulas now:

Lucky, since the new forum breaks support for non-standard image file names, which means that we can't use *any* 3rd-party embedding service (including all the old latex posts).
