Of course, Appleworks (which, despite its flaws (few and maddening) and price (free, if you don't count the cost of the attached computer), remains about the coolest thing around) will do all of that, too. It even prints what you've cobbled up. Appleworks' attached Equation Editor has its moments, but has rarely been much help here. None of which, of course, gets an equation into an FB app, does it? -- Ted Spencer; ted@... -- I'm lost, and I've gone out to find myself. If I get back before I return, please ask me to wait.
