Google Docs Adds LaTeX Support

A great day for scientists on the internet!

Google Docs, the online "office" suite of tools, has added a full equation editor into the document editor. Not only can you point-and-click your way through building equations, you can write them out if you're fluent in LaTeX and adjust them via an automatic preview.

As for LaTeX around these parts, I previously authored a MovableType plugin to output images from LaTeX code which has languished as I've been away from school. Now that I'm back in school (more on this later), more and more LaTeX will be required so I'll have to bring the plugin back from the dead. Hopefully soon! ]
