Summary:
support for equations with LaTex/jsMath

Detailed description
For anybody in sciences/engineering, equations support is essential. Tex is know by everybody in the field so, ideally,
one would type $$E=mc^2$$ or and get the celebrated equation. It might  be easy to accomplish this by using jsMath.
jsMath (http://www.math.union.edu/~dpvc/jsMath/welcome.html). All it takes is for a few lines calling jsMath.js to be
inserted everytime a page is saved. This was setup in a few wiki packages but none have the other advantadges of
instiki/plimki. Not only you'd get the equations with proper fonts, scaling. etc... but the latex save from instiki
would generate a latex file ready to be distributed. It's an ideal  way of writing papers in a collaboration ! Talking
around with colleagues I realized a large number of people who would make plimki their standar way of keeping personal
technical notes, write papers, classes, etc.

Hi Assaph!
I bumped into your great tool and I think your code is exactly
what I need!
Indeed, what is missing is the displaying of math code (MathML),
mentioned above.
Is it possible to add this feature?
I would appreciate if you could!

best, chi

Looks nice, thanks. Pure ruby will definitely make easier
implementation.

What about ritex.rubyforge.net? Seems to be a bit more elegant
to transform a TeX equation to MathML instead.

Hi!

Looks cool. I'll probably schedule it with the rest of the JS
related feature (S5 Presentations, FCKEdit) to around Pimki 3.0.
I am amenable to patches if you need it before :-)

Cheers,
Assaph
