Currently, LaTeX is well supported in WordPress, however there is one practical issue when typing LaTeX in WordPress, the need to type “$latex” for every single math expression! It gets pretty troublesome after a while.

For those familiar with LaTeX, one would know that for ordinary LaTeX typesetting, typing double $ will do, there is no need to type the word LaTeX. If I remember correctly, for Blogger there is no need to type “$latex”, hence it is a uniquely WordPress issue.

So far, I have not found any solution to this issue. (I am using WordPress.com hosted WordPress). Any readers who happen to know a solution, please enlighten me by dropping a comment! It will be greatly appreciated.
