How was the chemical equation created that can be seen in the website header (picture) next to the big {TeX}-sign (left) and below the sindarin(?) part?

I assume this was done using TeX somehow (wild guess :D), but I would really like to know whether it was done manually (if this is even possible) or which macro package was used, as it looks really neat.

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems.

Because this question is about (La)TeX and not the TeX.SX site itself, even if it is referenced, it belongs on the main site. I will migrate it there. Then the issue with the forced tag disappears as well. – Martin Scharrer Jun 29 '11 at 13:25
This has been more or less answered (indirectly) here – Seamus Jun 29 '11 at 13:30
@Martin: Oh, ok. I thought it belongs into the meta section, sorry. – Lustique Jun 29 '11 at 13:36
@Seamus: Thanks, I should have searched a little harder I guess. – Lustique Jun 29 '11 at 13:38
No problem. This case is a little confusing. :-) – Martin Scharrer Jun 29 '11 at 13:38

According to this answer, the code comes from TeXample.net.

There are easier ways to do this, though.
