You do this by creating an inline cell expression in the text cell. The keystroke sequence for this is Ctrl-9 ( or Ctrl-(, if you like ). Once you do this, you will see a small pink block with your text cursor sitting inside of a selection placeholder. You can now use any of the math editing keystroke sequences for creating formulae. Once you are done creating the cell, hit Ctrl-0 (or Ctrl-), if you like). The pink highlighting around the formula text should now disappear. Every time you place your text cursor within this region, the pink highlighting will reappear as a visual cue that you are using the front end's math editor. This is documented briefly in Section 1.10.10 of _The Mathematica Book_ (Fourth Edition. > Is it possible to get equations numbered automatically? There are > many, many such issues. I've written up a notebook that provides a pretty exhaustive discussion of automatic numbering objects. You can find it on MathSource. http://www.mathsource.com/Content/General/Tutorials/Programming/0209-821 It covers both using built-in numbering objects and customizing them to meet your needs. > Is there a good (or even modest) discussion of this available anywhere? There are some notebooks that were used as talk materials at the 1999 Mathematica Developer Conference. You can get them here. http://library.wolfram.com/conferences/devconf99/ -- P.J.
