And also where could i find some sort of manual on using equation editor...? It is pretty straight software i know but i just cant produce the symbol for a set of real numbers or any of the numbers in fact!! Any help would be much appreciated, thanks a million!!

    i have word 2003, so it may be a little different for you. go to Insert in the top menu bar, then click symbols. under the font drop down menu, select Mathematica 7, the symbols you need are there. it may be under something else for other versions of words, but the font would have something to do with math

    The ‘Equation Editor’ in Word is only a very lite version of MathType.
    If you want a full version go to Design Science - How Science Communicates.
    If you only want to produce TeX, then at the same website you can download TeXAide for free..

    But TeXAide also does not have mathbb font 'R' on a menu, and I don't know
    where you can get it to install as a TT or whatever font.

    (but then again you could just use bold R, after all the mathbb font is
    just a typographic rendition of what is used on a blackboard for a bold
    character)

    thanks for replying mate, i've actually got word 2003 myself but there is no mathematic 7 or anything of the sort, i've gone through the whole symbols and couldn't find it. any chance u could copy and paste the symbol on here? thanks aswell plato but installing MathType is not really an option for me but thanks anyway. and captainblack, i did ask but my notation has to be of correct form otherwise i get penalised for it!!
