I see that some of you can do them. Why can't I? :frown:

I see how to do the integral sign: [inte]

How do you do superscripts and subscripts? Summation signs? Anything else?

So far i figured out the Math symbols.
In the reply page, you will see the smilies on the left.
Under the smilies you see "Showing 15 of 55"
Under that there is a link saying "[Get More]".
Click it and a new window will show.
This one contains the math symbols.

But i still have the problem with SUP and SUB !!

hehe, I don't think so for 'sub'. It appears to be a reserved tag for subsets.

Oops, I'm a retard.

sub, when used by itself in brackets, is supposed to be "subset".

sub followed by /sub, again in brackets, is supposed to give you a subscript.

Let's see if it works.

edit: Yay, it does

edit: Yay, so does 'sup'.
