I'd like to clarify that the initial implementation of org2blog, IIRC,
did make use of the png images and upload them to the blog.  Sometime,
later support was added to support Wordpress's LaTeX plugin. To render
your LaTeX using this, in your wordpress blog, just set the variable
`org2blog/wp-use-wp-latex`.  [Btw, I hope you are indeed talking about
org to wordpress org2blog. There's another one that publishes to
blogspot, with the same name.]

Also, all of these ways which do work with HTML export should work
with the org2blog.  Also, thanks Nick for the detailed answer. :)
