Dedicated enough to write code for your own formatting? Then LaTeX is for you. And more than that, now you can use it on the forum!
This will enable you to insert mathematical formulas and other formatting that isn't possible using just the normal BBCODE of the forum. I'm not sure I'd recommend it for posting a whole article here, but I hope it will be useful!
For more information about this service, visit the project's website here:
http://latex.codecogs.com/
There are instructions and a helpful graphic editor there to guide you.
Once you have your code ready to go (or if you can just type it out right here!), you can post it on the forum like this:
[latex]\lim_{n \to \infty}\sum_{k=1}^n \frac{1}{k^2}= \frac{\pi^2}{6}[/latex]
(And note the "LaTeX" button above the message box.)
Even though the information thread is posted here, of course this doesn't just apply to computational linguistics! Use it all over the forum as you wish.
