latex2html
is used to
generate gif
(or png
) images from the math markup, and the image is then included in
the page. The first time a particular expression is rendered, you will notice
a lag as latex2html
is being run on the server. Once rendered, the image is
saved as an attached file for the page, so subsequent viewings will not require
re-renders. When you remove a math expression from a page, its image is
deleted.
Note that this plugin is called MathModePlugin, not LaTeXPlugin, because the only piece of LaTeX implemented is rendering of images of mathematics.
formula
</latex>
generates an image from the contained formula
. In addition attribute-value
pairs may
be specified that are passed to the resulting img
html tag. The only exeptions
are the following attributes which take effect in the latex rendering pipeline:
size
: the latex font size; possible values are tiny, scriptsize, footnotesize, small, normalsize, large, Large, LARGE, huge or Huge; defaults to %LATEXFONTSIZE%
color
: the foreground color of the formula; defaults to %LATEXFGCOLOR%
bgcolor
: the background color; defaults to %LATEXBGCOLOR%
The formula
will be displayed using a math
latex environment by default. If the formula
contains a latex linebreak (\\
) then a multline
environment of amsmath is used instead.
If the formula contains an alignment sequence (& = &
) then an eqnarray
environment
is used.
Note that the old notation using %$formula$%
and %\[formula\]%
is still supported but are deprecated.
If you might want to recompute the images cached for the current page then append ?refresh=on
to its url,
e.g. click here to refresh the formulas
in the examples below.

This is new inline test.
