It's true that I did not realized how useless and painful it was for  
big equations. Yes, it could be an option of the preferences... Does  
anyone have some other idea to make it useful and user friendly ?  
Should I just drop the idea of making a particular icon ?

Actually, on Tiger, the Creator is set, and LaTeXiT appear in Open  
With... menu. I did not look into Panther to see if it wasn't. I will  
investigate that.

I did not even see one; do not hesitate to send me crash logs !
