The first version of Word had this and I think it has always been  
there. I remember typing my undergrad thesis and using syntax like  
\sum_{}^{} in my thesis. This was in 1991. Every version of Word  
since has been able to display the document so I would guess this  
functionality has never been removed. It would seem like MS has just  
decided to pay more attention to it and make it a lot more useful.

Mathematics is a game played according to certain simple rules with  
meaningless marks on paper. (David Hilbert)
