Latex in Word provides macros for Microsoft Word that allow the use of LaTeX input to create equations images in both inline and display modes without having to install any software on the local computer. All of the LaTeX processing happens on a remotes server. All the user needs is Microsoft Word!
If you really get ambitious, you can set up your own server for even faster equation editing. It requires a little work, but it's not too hard.
Similar macros for other word processors will hopefully be added in the future.
Get started today by downloading the example Word document from our SourceForge project page. It's easy!
Please visit the downloads page to get a working example of latexInWord.doc. From there you can simply copy the macros to your own Word document, or just save the file as something new!
A larger selection of files is available in the CVS repository. There you can get the macros in text format, or check out the server-side code if you decide you want to implement your own server.

Dec 17, 07—Released version 0.1.2 of the server installation package. This adds the ability to process POST transactions in order to avoid the URL string length limitation of GET transactions. GET transactions are still accepted for backward compatibility. The client files (now including Word 2007) are updated accordingly.
The default example server has also been changed in the client files. The previous server will soon be going offline.
