I would love equation editor support. I have a plan to implement
this eventually but it will take some time (months at least). It will take
less time others can help :-)
I *THINK* that abi could display the image of the equation that MS Word
produces witht he help of some compiler options in wv.
I think that Coalan implemented an MS Equation format to MathML converter
but I haven't followed up on that recently. What is it's status Dom?
