Try this: type your text in a text cell (for example with Alt+7), and your summation or integration symbols taken from the basic input palette. Then select the cell and Cell | Convert To | Traditional Form and then Cell | Display As | Traditional Form. This should do the job. If the font changes to Courier (and you don't want it that way) try again Cell | Convert To | Traditional Form.
