pros, cons and recent comments
scavi EqualX is a tiny stand-alone application. TexMaths is an addon for an office suite.
Math, part of the Apache OpenOffice suite, is a tool for creating and editing mathematical equations, similar to Microsoft Equation Editor (included in Microsoft Office). The created equations can then be embedded inside other OpenOffice.
LaTeXiT is a small utility that allows you to quickly typeset LaTeX equations, without bothering with file creation, preambles, and so on. The PDF image obtained can then be exported by dragn drop to any application supporting it.
