The board has now been equipped with the 'quick reply' mod, as you can see at the bottom of this page.
We've also added AsciiMathML support:
Surround equations like:
x^2+b/ax+(b/(2a))^2(b/(2a))^2+c/a=0
with 'pipe' (vertical bar) or 'back tick' (acute accent, found on the 'tilde' (~) key on US keyboards)
i.e.: ‘x^2+b/ax+(b/(2a))^2(b/(2a))^2+c/a=0‘
With 'pipe' characters:
x^2+b/ax+(b/(2a))^2(b/(2a))^2+c/a=0
With 'backtick' characters:
`x^2+b/ax+(b/(2a))^2(b/(2a))^2+c/a=0`
Edit to add:
AsciiMathML also supports TeX style equations as well.
The script also allows you to put equations 'in line' with regular text:
The quadratic formula, x=frac{b + sqrt{b^2  4ac}}{2a}, should be familiar to most of our users. To see the 'code' used in an equation like frac{a}{b}=frac{b}{c} hover your mouse pointer over it.
Firefox users can download additional fonts used by MathML: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/fonts/
(Note: This will fix the 'weird' radical symbol issue.)
More information on AsciiMathML can be found at: http://www1.chapman.edu/~jipsen/asciimath.html

Completely cool!
Thanks, drichardson! I'm running Firefox 2.0.0.4 on Win98SE and it works perfectly!
The http://www1.chapman.edu/~jipsen/asciimath.html link explains how to use integrals, summation notation, and matrices.
Now how do we do vector calculus?
