I used to use MathType when I used Microsoft Office, but IMO the equation editor in OpenOffice is better :)

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:
