i am creating a website for our compulsory statistics course,the website should provide formula editing online.just like the following site:
http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=132582

now i am considering using latex to reach the goal
my development condition is asp.net and the main web language is C#.

i have many books on asp.net and C#,but no books tell how to programme to provide the members of the forum the service of editing formulas online.
i have the main CGI source code, but don`t know how to embed it in the html pages.
it gets the LATEX instrctions from the clients and when a user opens a web page including such instrctions, it should replace the instructions with the corresponding formulas in the form of graphics (latex can do this,just like MathType) which is eventually returned to the client's.

you should use letex instructions in your passage.
for example: [tex]\int[/tex], this instruction means a calculus sign.
you can click the graphics in other people`s passages to download a .pdf file and get a letex crash-course.

Ok this is not an easy mod and probably something best asked on vbulleting forums or the forum you are planning on doing it in. Basically the modified the source code for vbulletin to use a new bbcode. When this bbcode is parsed it runs latex and then inserts the output into the post.
