Dear god yes

Someone at WordPress.com apparently knows what’s what…you can now use \LaTeX to enter pretty math directly within posts. So, for example, here’s the definition of the entropy of a partition, that I had to \LaTeXon my own computer and then upload for an earlier post:

\displaystyle H(\gamma) = -\sum_{i=1}^k \mu(A_i)\log\mu(A_i)

and here’s the code:

$latex \displaystyle H(\gamma) = -\sum_{i=1}^k \mu(A_i)\log\mu(A_i)$

  1. What do you do to display the \textrm{\LaTeX{}} code like that without it being parsed?

  2. I think as long as you don’t have a literal “$” characters sandwiching the code, but instead use the & #36 ; form (without the spaces…), it’ll show up as literal code.
