MS Word's Equation Editor is awful. Something like LaTex would be much better. But LaTeX is 400 megabytes? Isn't there something smaller I can use? I have Maple but I don't think it includes an equation editor. I just want to put some equations into my web pages. Add them as a gif or jpg.

I just figured out a system that was so obvious that I overlooked it.

I just use the tex formatting system that is embedded in wikipedia.

For example there are a bunch of formulas on this page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equal_temperament

I go there, log in, edit the page using wikipedias code for adding equations, described here, preview the page, find the formula, and save the *.png file to my computer. Then I can convert it to a gif or jpg to use with my html file, or I can leave it as a png cause most browsers these days can include pngs on a page as well as gifs and jpgs.

slick

I was going to suggest finding a message board that has mimetex or similar installed and making a post, saving the image and deleting but wikepedia probably has a more robust implementation than mimetex and using them is less disruptive.
