    Tiny web page editors [was] Use of Sun Sights for Local time,and Lunars for Longitude

    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 present.
    A tiny graphics editor can be used to allow the insertion of small inline GIF 
    images to extend that further if need be.
