LaTex Equation Editor on the web

Sep 15, 2007

There is an interesting work on the web, and it's free. It is LaTex Equation Editor, This tool creates an image with transparent background, making it easy to embed in other software such as MS PowerPoint.

The drawbacks are:
1. Text in the equation cannot be changed. If we need white text, we will find ourselves in trouble.
2. Text size is a bit too small. I like it bigger in many situations.

Note: if you know a way to handle these problems, please leave a comment in this blog.
Many thanks

Update (Oct 28, 2007): I found a better one. It is Roger's Online Equation Editor at It can generate transparent background. Plus, we can increase resolution of an output to suit our work.
