    Symbols for expressing equations.

    I saw today that I'm not the only one that uses 'em around these parts. Since I already had LaTex going for a paper I was working on, I tossed the Greek alphabet up as text. It can be copy/pasted into a post. I thought this might be handy here:

    α β γ δ ε ζ η θ ι κ λ μ ν ξ ο π ρ σς τ υ φ χ ψ ω

    Α Β Γ Δ Ε Ζ Η Θ Ι Κ Λ Μ Ν Ξ Ο Π Ρ Σ Τ Υ Φ Χ Ψ Ω

    (Alpha Beta Gamma Delta Epsilon Zeta Eta Theta Iota Kappa Lambda Mu Nu Xi Omicron Pi Rho Sigma Tau Upsilon Phi Chi Psi Omega)

    I'll probably extend it later with other symbols as well...

    Cool! I guess the Web has solved all those thorny code-page issues. You mean we don't have to be limited to 7-bit ASCII anymore?

    Now can you get subscript and superscript in the text editor?

    Yes and no. BBCode supports it. I think we need to get Alex to enable those tags. and

    There's also a plugin for VBAdvanced that will render LaTex commands as images which is pretty cool, but a pretty involved mod.

    I'd kill for super and sub-script though. When I've needed subscript here I just use a tiny font[like this] No good replacement for super-script though...

    For those that don't know - it's square-bracket [ sup ] [/ sup ] and [ sub ] [/ sub ]
