HI,  there are always lots of ways to do things.  Not sure if this is
useful....

Below is a text cell with three lined up equations.   You can copy and
paste this into Mathematica, then use the cell Menu and Show
Expression to view it normally.

Cell[TextData[Cell[BoxData[
 FormBox[GridBox[{
    {GridBox[{
       {
        RowBox[{
         RowBox[{
          RowBox[{"2", "x"}], "-",
          RowBox[{"3", "y"}]}], "=", "5"}]},
       {
        RowBox[{
         RowBox[{
          RowBox[{
           FractionBox["1", "2"], "x"}], "-", "y"}], "=", "1"}]},
       {
        RowBox[{
         RowBox[{
          RowBox[{"2", "x"}], "-", "5"}], "=", "12"}]}
      },
      GridBoxAlignment->{"Columns" -> {{"="}}}]}
   },
   GridBoxItemSize->{"Columns" -> {{
        Scaled[1]}}}], TraditionalForm]]]], "Text"]




Hit control and return to add  a new line

I keep that handy for when I am typing systems, etc.
