I note the following. I can type an equation that is hard to read in plaintext, say:

Code: Select all

`del(u)/del(t) + u * del(u)/del(x) = del^2(u)/del x^2`

If you select the "url" option from the dropdown box, and then embed it in a (code) box, then folks can copy and paste to see a nice friendly version of the equation.

Like so.

Code: Select all

`http://latex.codecogs.com/gif.latex?\frac{\partial&space;u}{\partial&space;t}&space;+&space;u&space;\frac{\partial&space;u}{\partial&space;x}&space;=&space;\frac{\partial^2&space;u}{\partial&space;x^2}`

Only problem I currently see is this could break page-formatting, as the links can get terribly long and you can't use (size) commands within a (code) box. Can anyone think of a resolution to this?

Even as it is, it seems useful for SLAM and things. I bet most of the folks typing hairy-ass equations already know LaTeX anyway.
