Howto: Get nicely rendered LaTeX images online

I decided to use mathtex. It's a nice program indeed, but it needed some tuning for my needs:

  1. By default, LaTeX does not play nice with non-english letters. I fixed that by throwing in a pile of \usepackages.
  2. 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 (Patch)
Makefile used to build two versions of mathtex used on site
You can use this online LaTeX equation editor (on in russian), or this fast and lightweight previewer without any AJAX or JavaScript.
