LatexRender is a set of scripts that allows one to call LaTeX from PHP 
programs; in particular, this allows users to enter LaTeX commands in a 
forum and, on posting, have it replaced by a suitable gif or png. 
LatexRender requires LaTeX and ImageMagick to be installed. The open 
source PHP code was originally designed for use with phpBB, but it can be 
adapted for use with other PHP programs. Details and Example
