Excellent Choice.

Recommended Posts

I don''t foresee this forum being nearly as busy as some of the other forums here at GDNet, but let me be the first to say that a better choice could not have been made for its moderator.

So, Moderator Rhodes, you think you can get some extended notation in this forum for being able to properly annotate various formulae?

I can ask about that. It would be helpful if you could make some specific requests. I can think of a few...

Well, stuff like sigma, pi, rho, theta as symbols. The sig I posted above at least proves that <sup> works, so should <sub>. Maybe markup tags that translate into gifs, like smilies, but cooler. An ''eq'' tag for equations? Would be an interesting challenge to try and get LaTeX-like support in HTML.

I got those using D and small d.

Q W E R T Y U I O P A S D F G H J K L Z X C B N M
q w e r t y u i o p a s d f g h j k l z x c b n m


That's all the Greek letters you'll ever need.

PS The V key is useless, it does an overlined small omega and the open sigma (looks a bit like an s that's been pushed down ad bit and had its lower half shrunk) that goes at the end of a word rather than the ziggy zaggy capital sigma or the enclosing small sigma with the tail.

I swear I got laughed at for sugesting a forum like this a while back.
Oh how times change, I''m glad to see its here now though. Does this entitle me to laugh back at the people who laughed at me
Good luck and hello to the moderator I hope this place gets used.

Given furby100's post showing all the greek letters, do you have any other requests?
