as far as I can see, text that looks like a latex formula on a wordpress.com blog gets automatically parsed to an image.
I am posting to wordpress with org-mode and org2blog, an external utility that uses the xml-rpc interface.
I would like to use the latex-parsing capabilities provided in these packages rather than the automatic wordpress latex parsing.
Actually it all works pretty well (the resulting images get uploaded via xml-rpc and included into the blog post), except that org-mode includes the original latex code in the alt=".." element of the <img> tag.
apparently wordpress subsequently tries to parse this very alt-text as an latex image which obviously goes wrong and messes up the formatting.
In general I think it is undesirable that the alt-element is parsed (a bug?) but in my concrete example it would suffice to disable automatic latex parsing in the wordpress blog. Unfortunately I could not find any such option in the admin interface.
Thanks in advance for any help,
