Summary description: Mathematical equation editor for Windows. English, French, 
  and German editions.
License type: other-nonfree

Announcement text: 
MathType is a point and click mathematical equation editor. It is the
full-featured version of the Equation Editor that comes with Microsoft
Office and other products. While its mouse-centric user interface is
somewhat the antithesis of TeX's, it has a number of features that may
be of interest to members of the TeX community:

- It works with many Windows applications that TeX does not work
directly with, such as word processors, presentation programs like
PowerPoint, and many more. You can even place equations in flowcharts
made with programs like Visio.

- It can produce TeX and LaTeX code from its equations. This can be
helpful to someone learning TeX or just to take advantage of MathType's
ability to work directly in math notation in order to get the nested
braces right on a particularly gnarly equation.

- You can even type TeX language directly into the MathType window. This
allows you to get the best of both the WYSIWYG editing and TeX worlds.

- MathType can also produce GIF files for websites and blogs and EPS
files for desktop publishing chores.

MathType is supplied here as a 30-day evaluation. If you decide to
purchase MathType, you can use the Order MathType command within
MathType itself to purchase a product key. You can also visit the Design
Science website to learn more about MathType. If you have questions,
