Office 2007 for Windows includes a TeX-like way to input equations, if  
I'm not mistaken <http://www.unicode.org/notes/tn28/>. A blog post  
provides further detail <http://blogs.msdn.com/murrays/archive/2006/09/13/752206.aspx 

Apparently, this welcome novelty hasn't made its way to Office 2008  
for the Mac, for which Equation Editor remains the only way.
