      Description

      Some symbols (< > &  ) Latex (in my case Tetex 3.0) display as text &lt, &gt, etc.As far as I understand Tex filter make some clenups, but only for mimetex section of code...
      Section of code that works in my case:
      <...>
      // try and render with latex first
      $latex = new latex();
      $density = $CFG->filter_tex_density;
      $background = $CFG->filter_tex_latexbackground;
      $texexp = $texcache->rawtext;
      $texexp = str_replace('<','<',$texexp);
      $texexp = str_replace('>','>',$texexp);
      $texexp = str_replace('&','&',$texexp);
      $texexp = str_replace(' ',' ',$texexp);
      $latex_path = $latex->render( $texexp, $md5, 12, $density, $background );
      if ($latex_path)

      { copy( $latex_path, $pathname ); $latex->clean_up( $md5 ); }

      else {
      // failing that, use mimetex
      $texexp = preg_replace('Unable to render embedded object: File (\r\n?) not found.',' ',$texexp);
      $texexp = '\Large ' . $texexp;
      $texexp = escapeshellarg($texexp);
      <...>
