Re: How to include LaTeX images in your posts

[img]http://latex.codecogs.com/gif.latex?\Phi(x) = \frac1{\sqrt{2\pi}} \int_{-\infty}^x e^{-u^2/2} \, du[/img]
As I am writing this, the above LaTeX image is not visible. In fact, none of the LaTeX images which use this syntax are visible, because codecogs.com is down. Entire threads are now unreadable.

Of course, this is the risk we run when we rely on an outside site for our posting needs, instead of having a 2+2 owned LaTeX editor at our disposal.

FWIW, I have found another external LaTeX editor, which therefore gives us an alternative syntax:
[img]http://mathstat.uohyd.ernet.in/equationeditor/rawequation.php?insert LaTeX code here[/img]
This one seems to be working (at least for now):
