    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

    &

    http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/Un...2/U32-2070.pdf

    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 \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.

    For software that you can use to symbolically create equations and convert to LaTeX, use MathType.
