Testing LaTeX Support

I just set up the WordPress \LaTeX plugin so I can do some formula stuff here.  This is just a little test post with some example formulas taken from my sun/earth collision model.

Euler's Identity (at different sizes): e^{i \pi} + 1 = 0

e^{i \pi} + 1 = 0

Gravitational Constant: G= 6.673 \times 10^{-11} m^3\: kg^{-1}\: s^{-2} = 6.673 \times 10^{-11} \frac{m^3}{kg\:s^2}

Force due to gravity: F = G \frac{M_1 M_2}{r^2}

Inline also works (e.g., 2 + 2 = 4).

If you use shortcodes within a paragraph (e.g., 3 + 1 = 4) instead of the inline notation, you'll get a block. (This is a custom mod.)

Finally, if you put an inline in its own paragraph, it'll do this:

8 \div 2 = 4

Unless you explicitly state that it is a block:

8 \div 2 = 4

The reverse of that, as you'd expect, lets in-paragraph shortcodes work too (e.g., 3 + 1 = 4).

If you want to see the raw \LaTeX, it's in the tooltip/title of the image.  WordPress.com provides the encoding service, though the plugin supports a local/third-party image service as well.
