Need help with unavailable old feature.

Learn how to make may symbols

the old way of writing the integral symbol- [int]
isn't working anymore.

Neither are a lot of old maths symbols.

Is this feature available anymore and if so is there a list of what is useable

<int>
&int;

Hey! I found something that works!!!!

type
&
int
;

just without the return lines of course

let's see...

&thete; &alpha;
&tt; &aa;
&nabla;
&es;
 
Ok, sorry for technically spamming but since no other list is available I might as well see if these work.

I'll type the word then type it again but surround it with a & and a ;

Like this

word &word;

If it works a symbol should appear. OK so far

int &int;
nabla &nabla;
alpha &alpha;
theta &theta;
beta &beta;
epsilon &epsilion;
delta &delta;
gamma &gamma;
mu &mu;
nu &nu;
omega &omega;
sigma &sigma;
pi &pi;
zeta &zeta;

Alpha &Alpha;
ALPHA &ALPHA;

hope these have worked
 
WOAHHH!!!!
Check out all the stuff.
Does anyone know what this code is? There should be as list.

P.S. Is this appearing on everyone's browsers?

phi &phi;
rho &rho;
Pi &Pi;

can it do capitals?

Gamma &Gamma;
gamma &gamma;

Phi &Phi;
Theta &Theta;

Mu &Mu;
Omega &Omega;
omega &omega;

Wow, these symbols are amazing, the &int; sign is amazing compared to the old one. and also the others like &phi; and &omega; and &zeta; and the capitals like &Omega; and &Gamma; are really cool also.

Out of curiosity how did you find this magic new code? Surely you just didn't guess it...

Wow, I'm really impressed. Here is an example of how to make them: & Gamma ; (no spaces)
 
I can remember someone printing &nabla; once

so I checked the source cose,(view menu,source) and I saw they had written & nabla ; no spaces.

So I just tried it for int at the top of the page to see if it would work.

It did and well, you can see the results for yourself. I'm wondering if things other than greek letters work.
