+mathtex is a cgi program that lets you easily embed LaTeX
+math in your own html pages, blogs, wikis, etc. It parses a
+LaTeX math expression and immediately emits the corresponding
+gif (or png) image, rather than the usual TeX dvi.
+The following is just an example of use copied from the homepage:
+<img src="/cgi-bin/mathtex.cgi?f(x)=\int_{-\infty}^xe^{-t^2}dt"
+ alt="" border=0 align="middle">
+CGIDIR defaults to /var/www/cgi-bin, but pass a differnet value
+if your local installation needs something else.
