# Creating mathjax-style documents

Is there any software, website, etc. that renders a document as if MathJax were being used, but in such a way that the output can be read by someone who is not using MathJax? (Perhaps the equations and notation could be inserted as png images.) I'm not sure what format the output document should be; perhaps html, or rtf in the unlikely event that that is possible. Here are my motivations:

1. It's all very well to use GmailTeX to apply MathJax to emails I am reading or writing, but sometimes I send emails to people whom I know do not use this feature. I would like to be able to send them emails that I know they can read, without having to attach a pdf or include images by hand.
2. LaTeX has a fairly steep learning curve. It would be nice to have a way for students who want to communicate math by computer to concentrate only on typing the math, without having to learn about non-WYSIWYG typesetting, compiling, etc.

Chances are, what I am asking for is impossible without a revision of web standards or some such. But if there are any options that do anything like this, I would like to know about them.

Depending on the size of your LaTeX snippets, you could consider the standalone package to render them as individual graphics and put those into your document. LaTeXiT and other similar equation editors are also a good route to doing this. –  qubyte Mar 4 '12 at 7:16
