I started this blog in 2006 and now it’s 2012. How time flies! At this point it seems worthwhile to post links to previous posts grouped according to subject. The present post provides links relevant to the main theme of the blog, math editing and display in Microsoft Office. Eventually it would be nice to have a book on this subject. A future post will provide links to a secondary theme, RichEdit-specific documentation.

A number of readers have provided auxiliary information, “cheat sheets”, short cuts, etc. I’d like to collect a list of these, so if you have links to such information please send them to me and I’ll post them. Also please feel free to add such links as comments to this post.
