Plugin for Pidgin which translates LaTeX code into images in your
IM and chat conversations. This plugin looks for $$latex math$$
patterns and replaces them with the rendered LaTeX output.
As this is a local conversion only your buddies will have to install this
plugin too to see the LaTeX rendering.
