Latex to PNG

A converter for making png files from latex equations for easy import to html docs can be found here. Here is an example of the output:

You can also go here for a more powerful version of the same.

I like using the tex4ht tools to do the same thing. The nice thing about that approach is that it will turn in-line equations into html rather than pngs a lot of the time, so it looks better, and is indexable. For the equations that are turned into pngs it also generates alt text, which is a nice accessibility feature. I haven't spent the time to get a turn-key latex->blogger solution, so there's still some manual html fiddling to get it to work (mostly to do with css), but it's closer to automatic than not.

BTW, I found your site through your comment on Pielke's blog; your concerns about lack of validation in proxy modeling are similar to the ones I have about GCMs.
