We have color?
[tex] \textcolor{red}{Test} \begin{picture}(200,200)(0,0) \put(50,50){\textcolor{green}{\line(1,1){50}}} \end{picture} [/tex]

[tex]
\begin{picture}(130,90) \put(0,5){\epsfxsize=12cm \epsfbox{11.eps}} \put(0,90){$\tau_{B_c} $, ps} \put(123,7){$\mu$, GeV} \end{picture} [/tex]

This is a test.
This is not Latex. Just trying to see how to do greek letters and subscripts in regular html. α<sub>i</sub> Let's see how it looks. Well, it didn't work. I have seen other people typing formulas without latex and I wonder how they do it. What shows as "a" above I typed concatenating "&" "alpha" ";" Does anybody know how to do this? I know how to do it in latex, I just want to know how to do it without latex. I'll appreciate your help.

Like this?
abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz [FONT = Symbol] abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz [ /FONT ] delete the spaces in the tags. Symbol does not appear in the Fontmenu.

Bear in mind that not everybody has the Symbol font, and even if you do, it doesn't work everywhere because of certain issues.

Robphy:
I think that way of doing it would be adequate for typing a string of greek characters. I am not so sure it is for typing individual characters interspersed with regular letters as in physics equations. I used to know how to do this and I forgot. But the way I did it was not the way you suggest. I also need to do subscripts an superscripts. I was looking at the Font dropdown box and I don't see the font "symbol". Maybe this is what TALewis is talking about. I do have the symbol font when I am using MS Word, but not here. So I guess these fonts are not handled by the operating system. Whatever the solution, I would like of course for everybody to be able to see those greek letters correctly.

Math typesetting on the WWW has been one of the most frustrating things I have come across. Honestly, embedded images generated by LaTeX have been the best solution until something like MathML really gets into gear.

Thank you guys,
As answers to my question on this thread were slow to come at first and I figured that it might not be the best place to post a question about nonlatex on a latex thread, I initiated a separate thread. I got more answers there and I think with those instructions I can do what I want. TALewis was very helpful on that thread. Let's see if I can post a link to that thread: Typing equations without latex

[tex] 2\pi\int_{2}^{4} (3x^{2/3} +2)^{1/2}*(1 + (\frac{3^{2/3}}{3x^{1/3}*((3x)^{2/3}+2)^{1/2}})^2)^{1/2} dx [/tex]

How do you write the sign for a line integral around a closed curve?

How do you get multiple lines?
I have been trying for hours. I can only could get multiple lines that were indented to random amount by using "\begin{multline} .....\end{multline}". just using "//" does not seem to work.

gerben,
There are several ways. Examples of all these ways are provided on the first page of this thread. Click the images below to see their source code: [tex] \begin{multline*} a+b+c+d\\ +e+f+g+h \end{multline*} [/tex] [tex] \begin{equation*} \begin{split} a+b+c+d\\ +e+f+g+h \end{split} \end{equation*} [/tex] [tex] \begin{equation*} \begin{split} &a+b+c+d\\ &+e+f+g+h \end{split} \end{equation*} [/tex] [tex] \begin{equation*} \begin{split} a+b&+c+d\\ +e+f+g&+h \end{split} \end{equation*} [/tex]

Unfortunately, that gives aexactly the same results as using multline (I did indeed mistakenly type "//" in stead of "\\" in my previous post. I do use "//").
[tex] \begin{gather*} G:\ \ gravitational\ constant\ (6.672\ 10^{11}\ Nm^{2}kg^{2}) \\ line 2 \end{gather*} [/tex]

Use:
[tex] \begin{multline*} \begin{split} &G:\ \ gravitational\ constant\ (6.672\ 10^{11}\ Nm^{2}kg^{2}) \\ &line 2 \end{split} \end{multline*} [/tex] as I already said. Why on earth are you going to this much trouble just to post text anyway? Why use LaTeX formatting for mostly textual data?  Warren
