    OK, that didn't work. I am trying to figure out how to do all the other math symbols. The above works at another forum, and I was guessing that it applies generally.

    Does anyone know if there is an online instruction manual on how to do math symbols here? I saw the list of Greek letters, but I'm looking for stuff like partial derivative signs and whatnot. I saw that ObsessiveMathsFreak did some pretty integral signs in one of his posts, but now I can't find it.

    Does anyone know anything about this?

    Thanks

    ∫ – & int ;
    ∂ – & part ;
    ∇ – & nabla ;
    ≈ – & asymp ;
    ≡ – & equiv ;
    ± – & plusmn ;
    √ – & radic ;

    Thanks ben, I'll add those to the list. I also made the list easier to read and less confusing.

    Why do so many symbols on the above site appear as "boxes" on my computer?

    When all the major browsers support MathML, that would make a fine addition.
