If you are talking about this site, we use LaTeX as the equation typesetter.

The LateX code is placed between [tex][/tex] delimiters. The tutorial is here:http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...-tutorial.html

For sites that do not have LaTex, or to create your symbols if you don't have LaTex, Unicode is what you use.

Greek Unicode Entities

This is lacking to certain symbols that LaTex can handle on all browsers.

By that, I mean Microsoft's Internet Explorer for example, does not handle powers of numbers beyond 1,2,3. Also, it doesn't show subscript as well as $\displaystyle \bar{x}$

In addition, for a look and smoothness, unicode is certainly not anywhere close to the sexiness or portability of LaTex, but it is a decent solution nonetheless. - Apr 12th 2008, 02:53 PMxifentoozlerix
For software that you can use to symbolically create equations and convert to LaTeX, use MathType.
