Try MathType. I ued it extensively during a nine month contract. I don't
know how the MSWord equation compares, but MathType is a point-and-click
program that incorp[orates more math functions than most of use will ever
need, and you don't have to be a mathematician to use it. I don't have the
company or address handy, but I'll look it up if you are interested.
