This equation is written in the Math-Magic Editor, saved on the hard disk, uploaded to the Media-Library and then included as a jpg-image here in the Blog-Post.
This image can be further adjusted, if one clicks onto it. Then a menu opens and one can choose from several options.
At first it looks a bit complicated, but after a short time it is done automatically.
The benefit is, that the mathematical equations look really great.
Microsoft Word and OpenOffice – Writer
If one writes texts in Microsoft Word, then equations can be copied from the Math-Magic Editor and pasted directly into Word. The eqations can be zoomed in and out, without losing print quality.
If one uses OpenOfficeWriter, then this procedure does not work, because the print quality of the equations gets very bad.
