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 $\LaTeX$on 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.
