    There is an add-on in Microsoft Word called Equation Editor 3.0.  This
    allows full use of Greek, etc., and I have used it to generate some
    very complex equations which came out looking very publishable.
    Equation Editor has a "bigger brother" called MathType, which has Web
    capability.  I haven't had a chance to try this out yet.  You can find
    more information at:

    > George, I'm not sure how "proper equations" would fit into the world of www 
    pages. Obviously you could build web pages with any simple text editor. If 
    you confine yourself the the HTML3.2 standard the language is fairly simple 
    and it was considered normal to literally write the code for the
    entire page, then simply open it in a browser (which you already have)
    to view it, and redit it as needed.
    > But HTML3.2 provides very limited support for equation writing as there is 
    no easy means to include greek letters--they are not included in the usual 
    western english character set on the computer. Still, there is  support for 
    subperscript, subscript, lines above/below, and substantial equation
    editing. You might want to seek out the old HTML3.2 standards at
    http://www.w3c.org to see how powerful this can be--using the text
    editor you already own, with whatever character support is already
    > A tiny graphics editor can be used to allow the insertion of small inline 
    GIF images to extend that further if need be.
