In case we have any bloggers around (I know that at least Kai is around 
sometimes, but he uses MT) that would like to have LaTeX available on 
their website I thought I'd share the following:

Using LaTeX in Wordpress[1] is a site that shows you how to typeset 
equations from within a wordpress weblog. There is a TeX converter[2] 
that allows you to use LaTeX code in pretty much every PHP-driven 
website. The bad news is, you need ImageMagick and LaTeX installed on 
your hosting machine.

I haven't had a chance to take a closer look at mimetex[3], which 
supposedly works without a full blown LaTeX install on your server, if 
anyone does have experience with that please share your impression :-)
