Re: [FAQ] Drawing and equation formats

Line drawings should probably NOT be .jpg files, since the format doesn't
compress well for drawings, if you want the lines nice and sharp.  .gif is a
standard, as is .png, if you want to stay away from the LZW patent issues.

Any ideas on how to encode equations.. FORTRAN or BASIC style is moderately
ok (at least it is accurate) for algebraic expressions, but doesn't convey
the sense of the equation very well, and does not provide for operators like
differentiation and integration.

I've been using Word's Equation Editor and then converting to GIF, but is is
sort of clunky, and I'm not happy with the results.
