    Just type a normal x, then highlight and press the sigma button.

    Kind of looks like a backward E and its beside the YouTube button.


    ::EDIT:: Oh, in MS Word? I have no idea.

    In word 2003 "insert" and choose "object"

    pick "microsoft equation 2003"

    This is the free equation editor that comes with office 2003.

    I hope this helps.

    In Word 2007:

    Menu Bar at the top of window --> Insert --> Equation --> When you type x it will now automatically appear as x.

    you could use insert>special character on word

    I found these also, press alt and the number



    Alt 241 Plus or Minus
    Alt 47 / Fraction seperator
    Alt 0188 Quarter
    Alt 0189 Half
    Alt 0190 Three quarters
    Alt 46 . Decimal Point
    Alt 240 ≡ Exactly Identical
    Alt 61 = Equals
    Alt 247 ≈ Approximately equal
    Alt 60 < Less Than
    Alt 62 > Greater Than
    Alt 242 ≥ Greater than or equal
    Alt 243 ≤ Less than or equal
    Alt 251 √ Square Root
    Alt 252 ⁿ Power n
    Alt 0185 To the power of 1
    Alt 0178 squared
    Alt 0179 cubed
    Alt 227 π Pi
    Alt 248 Degree sign
    Alt 35 # Number
    Alt 236 ∞ Infinity
    Alt 230 Micro
    Alt 228 Σ Sum
    Alt 239 ∩ Suggest definition
    Alt 244 ⌠ Top half
    Alt 245 ⌡ Bottom Half

    they might be useful [although there is not an x there.
