LaTeX2WP minor update

LaTeX2WP is a program that converts a LaTeX file into something that is ready to be cut and pasted into the WordPress online editor. It makes it easier to write mathematical posts, to post lecture notes on WordPress, and so on.

A new version is now available, which fixes a couple of bugs:

  • WordPress has trouble if a mathematical expression containing < is followed by a mathematical expression containing >. This is prevented by converting the inequality symbols to their HTML “character codes.”
  • The previous version of LaTeX2WP had trouble with long sentences in square brackets; this is fixed.

In addition, \S for § and \v{C} for Č (as “in Stone–Čech compactification”) now work.

What is the point of this program?
