I have an initial implementation ready of the [latex] code, this is my first test trying the same binomial equation:

How about a simple inline equation, how's that look?

Re: A bit of basic string theory
I wasn't happy with that either and already had inquiries in. The problem seems to be that the graphical renderer assumes a white background, and so the text is dithered with that assumption.

In the meantime, here's another way to say Latex:

Testing a variation...
Current:

A couple variations using old rendering approach:

$\fg_f2ffff \fn_jvn \95dpi \frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}$

$\fg_f2ffff \fn_cm \100dpi I=\int_{\cal{B}}d^4\! x\sqrt{\tilde{g}} e^{\Phi}\left(\tilde{R}(\tilde{g})+\left(\nabla \Phi \right)^2-{1\over 12} H_{\mu\nu\rho}H^{\mu\nu\rho} \right)$

Re: A bit of basic string theory
http://www.codecogs.com has a Latex renderer.

Another Variation
$\fg_f2ffff \300dpi \frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}$

$\fg_f2ffff \300dpi I=\int_{\cal{B}}d^4\! x\sqrt{\tilde{g}} e^{\Phi}\left(\tilde{R}(\tilde{g})+\left(\nabla \Phi \right)^2-{1\over 12} H_{\mu\nu\rho}H^{\mu\nu\rho} \right)$

Okay, this looks pretty good, but I'll have to have Javascript code explicitly set the image widths according to some predetermined scale.

Yet Another Variation
Got an answer back from CodeCogs, giving it a try with both non-bold and bold, and with white and red:

$\color{white}\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}$

$\bf\color{white}\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}$

$\color{red}I=\int_{\cal{B}}d^4\! x\sqrt{\tilde{g}} e^{\Phi}\left(\tilde{R}(\tilde{g})+\left(\nabla \Phi \right)^2-{1\over 12} H_{\mu\nu\rho}H^{\mu\nu\rho} \right)$

$\bf\color{red}I=\int_{\cal{B}}d^4\! x\sqrt{\tilde{g}} e^{\Phi}\left(\tilde{R}(\tilde{g})+\left(\nabla \Phi \right)^2-{1\over 12} H_{\mu\nu\rho}H^{\mu\nu\rho} \right)$

Excellent!

Re: Independent confirmation
Does IE 6.0 not handle .png's? .png's are the only way I can get clean rendering. .gif's can't handle it with good resolution, apparently because they don't possess a native alpha (transparency) layer.

IE *is* up to 8.0 now, perhaps it's time?

Re: Updated Latex Rendering
Oh, wow, you give me far too much credit. That equation is Cavediver's contribution. Of course, in all modesty I must confess that once I saw the equation I immediately recognized it as a 12-dimensional string theory equation that represents how squigglies beat parentheses.

LaTeX More Powerful Than I Thought
I've just discovered you can do things like this using Latex:

Does anyone know of a concise but complete source of documentation for Latex that is on-line?

I replied to your message because it was the last in the chain. I know you're not an IE stick-in-the-mud and a late adopter.

Re: Independent confirmation
IE 6 can invoke AlphaImageLoader to load png's. What a fascinating challenge it would be for someone to implement code for the board software that would detect IE 6 and use the AlphaImageLoader!

Re: Independent confirmation
Just brought up IE 6 to see what you guys are dealing with. It's not that bad, the dots are kind of pretty.

So you guys who work for Big Brother, are you blocked if you try to download FF, Chrome or Safari? If you can download them then you could still use IE for all work related websites.
