For a long time it has been difficult to include special formatting like mathematical or chemical formulae, footnotes, figures with numbers, and reference lists in HTML documents. Alex and Gundula Clausen implemented these features for this blog in a way similar to LaTeX. Scientific articles can therefore be presented as blog articles and not only provided as PDF downloads. This is in my opinion the future of scientific publishing.
