    Word 2008 does not support equations.

    Blame Microsoft for their huge lack of parity between Mac and Windows versions of Office.

    On the plus side, I believe Office 2011 (which is coming later this year) will support them.

    I am so waiting! i was just thinking about when the next Mac Office would be out, i'm still using 2004, and i'm currently demoing 2008 because i want something native but still with grammar/writing style controls.

    If we are lucky (and I said *if*), office 2011 will support them.

    Hopefully.
