Here are some of the things I commonly used, feel free to contribute more. A list of LaTeX mathematical symbols is available at http://amath.colorado.edu/documentation/LaTeX/Symbols.pdf.

Could you possibly make it that so when you click on the generated text it gives you the source code?
i.e see here

Cheers

phagist_, I'll see what I can do
For now, you can click the "Quote" link next to a post and then look in the quote for the code. Or, right-click the image and view its properties, the LaTeX expression will be present in the URL, after the ?

For example:
$\mbox{Hello world}$
http: //stuff.daniel15.com/cgi-bin/mathtex.cgi?%5Cmbox{Hello%20world}
