You might have a look at the above. I recall 'playing' with it once upon a time and seemed fairly easy.

You should be able to use something like Mathematica, but I'm not sure that it can be convinced not do the actual calculations.

The best Windows-based implementation of LaTeX is called MikTeX, and is available here in one bundle:

http://www.miktex.org/

Also, LaTeX is usually present in just about any Unix environment.

There are also tools to convert .dvi files (which are LaTeX's raw output) to .png and other formats for inclusion on the web or in other kinds of documents. LaTeX has more than enough oomph to typeset entire books, however -- and it's a LOT more capable of flexible and less annoying than products like MS Word.

For the faint of heart, Mathematica actually includes a filter than can write out a Mathematica notebook in LaTeX notation.Originally posted by NateTG
