I believe the current engine is mimeTeX.

The current output is not very pretty, and matrices -- the workhorse

of computer graphics -- look especially bad.

Although the WikiTeX output is more attractive, it is also in the form

of images. These consume extra bandwidth, don't work well inline, and

don't scale. One of the goals of BlahTeX is to generate MathML output,

which is a much more satisfactory way to incorporate mathematical

content in a web page.
