Name        : mimetex
Product     : Fedora 11

URL         : http://www.forkosh.com/mimetex.html
Summary     : Easily embed LaTeX math in web pages
Description :
MimeTeX lets you easily embed LaTeX math in your html pages. It parses a LaTeX
math expression and immediately emits the corresponding gif image, rather than
the usual TeX dvi. And mimeTeX is an entirely separate little program that
doesn't use TeX or its fonts in any way.
