Google's Knol incorporates LaTeX based equation editor

What is Knol? I didn't know 'til I ran across the subject of this post and
still don't know more than the para found here:


I'm not qualified to judge.

Hi Paul-



My take on this is that Knol is basically Google's attempt to
co-opt/supplant Wikipedia. (Good luck with that, guys.)



As for the equation editor specifically, I haven't used it myself, but
it looks like it would be moderately useful-provided your target
document groks LaTeX, e.g. an actual LaTeX document, or an HTML document
using jsMath (
might be able to hack the guts of Arbortext to make it load and
understand the LaTeX macros, but doing that would be beyond even
seasoned Arbortext developers. (By that I mean people who develop
applications based on Arbortext-like most of us--not PTC employees who
develop the software itself.)



Of cours...
