Hi all,

I installed mimetex on paris. This is a simple CGI script which lets you
send latex (math mode) code in as a query string and returns a GIF image
of the math. You can inline this in an tag on a web page to have
instant math. For example, visit this link:

http://www2.demo.cs.brandeis.edu/cgi-bin/mimetex.cgi?\pi=3.14159\ldots

If you were writing HTML, you could do:

...
$\pi=3.14159\ldots$
...

to have that appear on the page. It handles pretty crazy stuff. For
instance:

$\huge S\longrightarrow^{\lambda_{_T}p}\mathbb{R}^T$

works fine.

The documentation is here:

Enjoy,

Anthony
