Clearly understanding risk that someone would flame chats I would like
to add that on Mac OSX multinet chatware Adium has also (pseudo) LaTeX

I just asked a question about using LaTeX, which is, I think, the
purpose of this list.  I wanted, and still want, to be able to put up
some decent looking formulas in a blog.  I did not want, and still do
not want, to engage in a debate over the point of blogs, lists, e-mail,
mathematics, or whatever.

The answer to my question appears to be that it is not possible.  If
anyone knows otherwise, please let me know.

question see above.
in the beginning of this message. It is possible.

You can also produce ps or pdf file with the formula using LaTeX and
convert them to jpg or png file (it is exactly what latex2html does)
