h1. Howto: Get nicely rendered LaTeX images online

I decided to use "mathtex":http://www.forkosh.dreamhost.com/source_mathtex.html. It's a nice program indeed, but it needed some tuning for my needs:

# By default, LaTeX does not play nice with non-english letters. I fixed that by throwing in a pile of \usepackages.

# I hate black-on-white scheme, so I made a modification to source code to allow changing color of rendered formulas on compilation.

You can see the results here: [http://dump.bitcheese.net/xet/mtex.cgi?yourformulahere]. Change mtex to mtexi for inverted output.

"Modified Mathtex source":http://dump.bitcheese.net/files/nasukux/mathtexi.c.gz ["Patch":http://dump.bitcheese.net/files/mewazol/color.diff]
"Makefile":http://dump.bitcheese.net/files/walevaz/Makefile used to build two versions of mathtex used on site
