J.
In the meanwhile we could use smilies for math symbols.

Something like this: and this
Yes, that would be a good stopgap measure. julien, does that sound workable?

I don't know Latex, but another way to do it would be to covert Latex output to images like jpegs and then embed them in the posting; I think the images have to be on some website though and cannot be uploaded directly.

This isn't easy, though. Actually converting to JPGs is quite hard, bu even converting to GIF or is less than easy. There are several solutions out there, but most take at least some work to integrate with the server. In this case julien cant run the kinds of programs that exist, so he'd have to write his own. (As I recall, anyway; try looking for similar threads to get the full story.)

Actually, it isn't that difficult to convert them if you just zoom them to the right size and then take a screenshot of the screen with the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard. Then just paste the result into any image processing software and save it as any file format you want. I do this all the time with things like Latex files.

I was talking about doing this server-side automatically. I've done it many times manually.

Yeah. My Web Host doesn't let me run cgi scripts, only Perl. I am hesitating to change hosts because the one I am with now is very stable (though having a lot of limitations, like no control of .htaccess files, no Wildcard DNS, etc ...). But in the past I experienced some pretty bad stuff with other hosts, so I'm rather scared. Anyone here running a board with a certain host and is happy with it ? I want the host to be located in the US (preferrably), in France or in any country directly neighboring France.
