    Word includes an Equation Editor. It may not be installed by default, however, so you might need to find your Office install CD and install it from there.

    I know how to make your latex not print in pink, it should be so easy. First off, answer this. Does anything black and white print in pink? You can save each picture as a *.png, then past them into work, that will surely work. if you need help quick, give me your AIM or MSN or something, I will show you how to do it, hehe.
