Amazing math typesetting with MathJax

By accident, I stumbled on something interesting. You are probably aware that I write my books and most of the class handouts with LaTeX. Equations are particularly convenient, because LaTeX typesets equations just… right. Something that I can’t do in, say, html. It would appear, though, that others already solved this problem: A script that lets you remotely render a LaTeX equation — MathJax.

This means, you type in your html code (or post) something like

F(s) = \int_0^\infty f(t) e^{-st} dt

and what you get is:

\[F(s) = \int_0^\infty f(t) e^{-st} dt \]

Not bad, actually.
