    Where do I find a software which will render latex like that of this forum?
    I have downloaded and installed Miketex. So now I need a software to render it.I have tried many,but they produced ugly letters.

    I don't use anything - I just type what I want in LaTeX directly into the text window. I use LaTeX mostly just for integrals and matrices, and sometimes when I want fractions to look nice.

    I normally don't use LaTeX for exponents and subscripts - I use BB tags that you can get from the extended menu when you click Go Advanced.

    No.I'm talking about a windows binary software(Not sure what this means ).
    I want to write a document in something like MS word.The problem with MS word is that it's equation editor produces ugly letters.
    For example,I want to write a letter to the president and to include a nice equation in it and print it on a paper.
    I'm downloading it now.
