Are there any way to embed mathml in a post (and get it rendered when viewing the post)?

Or are there another easy way to include math-formulas in a post?

There is no way to embed the actual MathML markup (XML/HTML style) into a post.

The best alternative is to use a MathML editor (many online) and then take a screen capture of the resulting equation, and then just embed the image like you would a screenshot.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

I just tried phibin.

You go to phibin.com, enter your LaTex equation, example
 
Code
\begin{document}
  Hi guys, here is 
 \[\cos x=\sum_{k=0}^{\infty}\frac{(-1)^k}{(2k)!}x^{2k}\]
\end{document}
Server answers with an url
 
Code
{  "item_id":"4ecd627bd470cce81c000003",  "url":"http:\/\/phibin.com\/4ecd627bd470cce81c000003",  "image":{   "url":"http:\/\/phibin.com\/data\/latex\/309\/30946b532fe66d88e65195cd1a25fcef666a8983.png",   "width":541,   "height":106  } }
That actually works :
