Disable LaTeX parsing?

  1. Hey,

    as far as I can see, text that looks like a latex formula on a 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,
