Hello Matthew,

Thanks for the reply. I am using MediaWiki (WikiPedia's software) and
unfortunately that does not support \usepackage{} :(

Out of interest I have MediaWiki running on my own Linux server, do you know
is there anyway to preload packages ?

Also I dont even know how to run TeX on the command line, can I put the code
in a .tex file then run tex on it ? I should experiment with this.
