so, i didn’t know about this, but it looks like WP has support for Latex, so if ever i feel like geeking out on here, i no longer have to jump through hoops to display something even as convoluted as this craziness (from the above page):

$i\hbar\frac{\partial}{\partial t}\left|\Psi(t)\right>=H\left|\Psi(t)\right>$

…for which the code is simply:

$latex i\hbar\frac{\partial}{\partial t}\left|\Psi(t)\right>=H\left|\Psi(t)\right>$

some more to be found in the WordPress-Latex FAQ.
