I don't think there is anything in common high school math that requires or even cries out for the use of an equation editor. The standard linear form of math expressions works just fine  and use of ^ for exponentiation is now rendered in many web browsers as the usual raised superscript. The fact that you might use more parentheses than usual for fractions, etc I view as a pedagogic bonus. If you think otherwise, please give several examples. Ladnor Geissinger
