Hm, nice for equations (if the result is something like "a=..."), not 
so nice for any other tex snippets (e.g. \LaTeX).

Another idea would be to give the user a selection rectangle to 
determine, which part of the image should be used for the icon. But 
maybe that's way too much effort just for the document icon.
I could very well live with a standard icon, if it's a good one. Maybe 
one that's derived from the standard PDF icon plus some subscript 
"\LaTeX" to indicate that it contains Latex source code.

Yes, that's a good solution.
