I want to thank you for reminding me of this, and I also thank Stephen for
finding it. I have just installed the TechExplorer plugin. It installs
more or less automatically and also seems to work automatically.

This leaves me with only one request of Matti and others who compose TeX or
LaTeX documents: Instead of including such documents as part of the
message text, it would be easier for those who are using this plugin if you
would save them as separate files with the extension .tex or .latex (or
.ltx), and then send it as an attached file. That way the TeX file can be
opened directly by the browser plugin, without requiring the recipient to
save part of the message text into a separate file with the correct
