In OpenOffice Writer you can go to Insert>Object>Formula
At the bottom of the program a window will pop up where you can enter you equation. I suggest creating a keyboard shortcut so you can enter equations quickly.

On the tool bar, you need to press the 3rd button from the left in the bottom row (for my set up anyways). It is a rectangle that is checkered with black dots at the upper right and lower right corners. The tool help that comes up is the "subscript and superscript templates." When you press that, another small tool bar shows up. You will see a checkered rectangular box that has a small black box in the position you want the script. In my tool bar, the sub script is top row (of the new box) second from the left. I use it all the time. There are a lot of other options in there.

FredGarvin, what are you talking about? Are you talking about Openoffice or Word?
