On these forums, and in some of my online assignments, people have been using some sort of program or language to type out formulae.

1) What language is this?
2) How do I use this language on the forums? I know the general language, just not how to apply it here.
3) Is there any way to get it (or something similar) to work in MS-Word?

You can also use TexAide, also available from Design Science (#3 in the previous list, the one which offers MathType). TexAide is freeware. If you use the TexAide, then when you paste your expressions or formulas into your message, you need to surround the copied code with tags:

[tex ] [ /tex]

... but without the spaces seen in that line of demonstration.

What I really mean is something like -----
expressions or formulas into your message, you need to surround the copied code with tags:

[tex ] putYourExpressionCodesHere [ /tex]

... but without the spaces seen in that line of demonstration.

As for 3), once you get to work with [itex]\LaTeX[/itex] and develop some skills with it, I doubt you will want to insert your LaTeX expressions into MS Word, instead of just writing the whole document in LaTeX :smile:
