2[ sup ]2[ /sup ], but without the spaces (sub for subscripts), see: 22, 22

Nice!

But what about the integration and differentiation signs? and the rest of these signs too, if possible.

Whenever you post a reply, you will see a box containing some "smilies" on the left.
Under this box, there is a link saying "Get More".
Click it.
A new window will pop up, you will find lot of math symbols there.
Examples (dont' forget to delete the spaces between [ ] )
[ inte ] [inte]
[ squ ] [squ]
[ del ] [del]
And others ...

It seems all greek letters can be written in the & name (no space in-between) format. However, your choice of font will affect how nice the letters look. Here's the lower case greek alphabet in times new roman:


&alpha&beta&gamma&delta&epsilon&zeta&eta&theta&iota&kappa&lambda&mu&nu&pi&omicron&xi&rho&sigma&tau&upsilon&phi&chi&psi&omega


You can always fall back on windows-style specification of symbols. For instance, if you hold down the alt-key and enter numbers on the number pad, you can get:

× alt-0215
÷ alt-0247



I would be entirely unsurprised if there's pre-existing documentation of all of the characters one can create via the "& name" format, but I don't know where it is.

Some one posted a link to a pretty exhaustive site documenting the &name format characters. The link is in the feedback forum in a topic called math symbols or something, its near the bottom and is really good.
