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.
