LaTeX in blogger postings

I've spent some time this evening setting this blog up so that I can include mathematical formulas like


This is done using the wonderful MathJax package, which allows me to type LaTeX formulas into a blog posting and have them automatically processed by a javascript program that converts the LaTeX for display.

This should work with Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome. I've only tested it with Firefox and Chrome. If you see this and and can't read the above formula, please let me know what browser you're using.

If you're curious about how to do this blogger, please send me an email- the required HTML code is a bit of a pain to describe in a blog posting (where it would end up getting interpreted!)
