Now that MimeTeX is working, you probably don't need to know about
latexrender, which does the same thing, but calls LaTeX to render
the equations, then saves them as .gif files. For an example, see


I tested both and my experience was that:

- the latexrender equations looked better

- some equations which MimeTeX rendered wouldn't render in LaTeX
