Handy WordPress tool

Ever wanted to insert an equation into your WordPress.com blog post? Well now you can. The comments that accompany this announcement are quite amusing; it’s divided WordPress users into those who say “wow, cool!” and those that say “what the hell is this and why would I want it?” Like I said – so you can put equations in your posts. Doesn’t everyone need to do that?

I assume the feature uses something like mimeTeX, which enlightened bloggers have employed for quite some time.
