    Lookee what I found!

    If you use the tag (without spaces of course):

    [ font=symbol ](insert letter)[ /font ]

    you can get math symbols to appear. I haven't tried them all yet, but here are a few:

    [ font=symbol ]p[ /font ] --> p
    [ font=symbol ]g[ /font ] --> g
    [ font=symbol ]z[ /font ] --> z

    i have a question what does the |= symbol represent?

    Nor did it work on mine: Opera 6.11 on RedHat Linux 7.2
    I used this trick in octave (a matlab clone) to get my greek letters. The latex style (with &) seems more intuitive.

    I had to use an italicized X for "chi"
