MathType is the Professional Version of Equation Editor
If you are familiar with our Equation Editor included in Microsoft Office and other products, then you will really appreciate MathType's extra features. It will let you create a wider range of equations for a wider range of documents, and help you work much more efficiently. We've added an enormous amount of functionality that effectively transforms Microsoft Word into a state-of-the-art math word processor and web page editor.
MathPage: Revolutionary New Technology for Publishing Math on the Web
MathType includes our new MathPage technology that enables you to transform an entire Word document to a web page with equations that print and display beautifully in any modern Windows, Macintosh, Unix or Linux browser -- no existing product or technology yields better results or is easier to use.
MathType applies the rules of mathematical typesetting as you type. It automatically chooses fonts, style, spacing and position as you enter the equation. You can modify MathType's rules to accommodate your own style, or switch between automatic formatting and plain text modes with a single keystroke. For maximum flexibility and control, MathType gives you the ability to nudge equation elements in 1/4 point increments.
