Method for using Ecto and LaTeXiT.
I’ve been playing around with a workaround for using LaTeX in Scienceblogs (the powers that be have promised this power, but I need my equations now!)
The solution I’ve found is a bit of a kludge, but not that bad. First of all I’m using an offline blogging software: ecto. Ecto has a rich text editor (and a good switch to html without a bunch of ugly html code) and a nice feature of drag and drop for images. Then I use LaTeXiT to create a png of the equation I want to insert (LaTeXiT needs to be configured to export png) and then just drag and drop. Of course the formatting is a bit odd, since the equation has some spacing issues, but you can perform some margin manipulations with the drag and drop into ecto.
Here are some examples: Einstein said: but someone walking by said “No Albert! only in the rest frame! Really the equation you want is “
