One can install MathJax on their server and use it to include beautifully-typeset math in their webpages. To get it to work in Blogger, follow the steps below.
- ssh into your server and install MathJax as described here (preferably with the svn method so that you can easily update MathJax in the future).
- Since (most likely) Blogger is not hosted on your server, follow the instructions here. You basically need to create the file
.htaccessin the server's
mathjax/fonts/HTML-CSS/TeX/otffolder and paste the following text in it:
<FilesMatch "\.(ttf|otf|eot)$"> <IfModule mod_headers.c> Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*" </IfModule> </FilesMatch>
- Finally, go to your Blogger account, click "Design", and then "Edit HTML". After the first
<head>you see, paste
your-serveris to be substituted with your server's http address.

AMSsymbols.js, so that the macros and environments they provide are defined for use on your blog.
