> Comment #30848
I have no objections to Dinre's clarification, although I'm curious about the use case. If the idea is just to use ddg as a quick and easy LaTeX renderer for formulae so they can be copied and pasted into a word processor, then the obvious way of doing that would be rendering as an image. Previous commenters have suggested MathJax, but AFAIK that uses image fonts to composite the equation in a form that's not easy copied and pasted.
Sure, you could just focus on displaying the result, but as far as I can see there's not much value in that. I can't think of a reason why I'd have raw LaTeX markup and merely want to know what it looked like, and you don't lose anything by rendering as an image.
That said, if MathJax is the only feasible way, then it's better than nothing at least, if only for the coolness value.
