    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 ;
    Want more?

    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?

    i would like to suggest something..

    how about an EQUATION EDITOR in Physics Forums? just a thought... :)

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