Ok so what is new with this setup?

Well it uses latex rendering engine itself to convert the tex code to png images, its slower, but it yields better results, produces a better quality pictures and supports plugins (also has better fonts and is more configurable)

Note: the old rendering engine is still up and running, i want people to use the new one though, it is better trust me!

Old Vs. New:

First of all the new version does waaay better arrays, take a look at this code

left[ begin{array}{ c c } 1 & 2 \ 3 & 4 end{array} right]perfectly legitimate array code, but in our old package it renders as

Old:

[latex]

\left[

\begin{array}{ c c }

1 & 2 \\

3 & 4

\end{array} \right]

[/latex]

while the new one does a better job and renders it as such:

New:

[math]

\left[

\begin{array}{ c c }

1 & 2 \\

3 & 4

\end{array} \right]

[/math]

here is an example of how much cleaner the rendering is in this version:

old:

[latex]\frac{\frac{1}{x}+\frac{1}{y}}{y-z}[/latex]

new:

[math]\frac{\frac{1}{x}+\frac{1}{y}}{y-z}[/math]

old:

[latex]\Delta =\sum_{i=1}^N w_i (x_i - \bar{x})^2[/latex]

new:

[math]\Delta =\sum_{i=1}^N w_i (x_i - \bar{x})^2[/math]

in addition to the new render engine, a new mode is now available for displaying chemical equations

lets try to display a simple chemical formula (not a chemist, merely a hypothetical formula):

frac{1}{2}^{277}_{90}Th^+

[latex]\frac{1}{2}^{277}_{90}Th^+[/latex]

looks clumsy and hard to understand, does the job, but kinda hard to write

now the new method

[FONT=monospace]1/2^{277}_{90}Th+[/FONT][ce]{1/2^{277}_{90}Th+}

[/ce]

does this not look better?

or another one H2O2

H_{2}O_{2}

[latex]H_{2}O_{2}[/latex]

vs

H2O2

[ce]{H2O2}[/ce]

Also, if you are typing a response, instead of taking the whole function and having to rewrite it from scratch (in a reverse engineering fashion), you can click the image and voila, it shows you exactly what the person typed in, correct it and repost it! (saves lots of time)

ok, so now how do you use this new rendering engine, and as you guessed latex tags stay for the old engine (at least until i make sure that everything written for the old engine will render in the new one:

there are 3 new tags:

[math][/math] - renders mathematical equations

[imath][/imath]- renders inline math

[ce]{}[/ce] - renders chemical equations

notes, for ce, you need a set of curly brackets, otherwise the equation will be taken as math or something like that...

more about all that later, please post any problems you may find here or pm me directly about them

also feel free to try the new engine out here, its sort of still in testing (there are some minor differences between mimetex and this package)

there is a 400 character limit on the math, 200 on imath and 200 on ce, if that becomes an issue i can alsways increase the limit, but as i said, any comments or problems you may find, please post here or PM me so they get solved...

enjoy

Play around with it a little, see what you can make of it yourself

oh so i dont forget this is really cool, an online wyswig latex editor:

LaTeX Equation Editor

its not a bad thing to play around with and the code it produces should be compliant with our engine
