    MathType

    Has anyone ever used MathType? Also, can either mathtype or LaTex be used in an e-mail, I haven't figured out how yet.

    And finnaly, is it pronounced LaTex like the glove?

    ah, yeah. i've used it before, not any more though. now i use LaTeX in texniccenter. mathtype is a nice program though.

    not that i know of. you would have to compile a file first and you can attach that to an email. or you can note that mathtype can be used with word, so get your symbols into word and the regular copy and paste should work to get it into the body of an email. just something to try.

    it is pronounced Lay-tech. "tech" as in how you'd pronounce the shortented version of technology, like "tekh"

    MathType in email

    MathType can in some cases be used in an email, depending on the client (i.e., the program you're using for email). You'll get best results if both you and the person you're sending the email to are both using the same client. I've had the best luck with Outlook 2007 on both ends. Since you're not always able to know ahead of time what email client everyone's using -- and some email clients don't allow you to use images inline with the text of your email -- you might be better off writing it up in Word and sending as an attachment.

    I'm not aware of an email client that allows LaTeX, but there may be one that I don't know about.

    LiteralMath will allow you to layout 2D math in monospaced fonts, which should work in email if you are using plain text email and monospaced fonts (preferably the same one) at both ends.

    Or, do what the rest of the text only world does and use a psuedo-LaTeX (there is even a Wikipedia article on how to do this, though I take exception in their not using brackets for function arguments for logarithmic and trig functions)
