On posers and puzzles quite often some kind of mathematical problem arises that can't be propperly explained, described using a mix of natural language and some ingenious use of the existing symbols. So it would be good for us to have some math tags available. Nothing fancy of course just the more down to earth symbols that are missing.
For example the use of subscripts and superscripts would be very nice, some symbols of set theory, the more usual one again.
Of course if this is to troublesome and only appeal to a few of us we can always resort to our previous ingenious methods.

Thanks

Ps: any more ideas on what symbols to have would be fine and please don't, or try to, be funny while at it.

This technology exists (see Wikipedia for example) and it's (probably) no harder to have the lot rather than some subset. While I can see that it's hardly a priority - this being a chess and not a maths site - it would be nice.

..math...the cereal of the gods...the plasma of the intellects...the grime on
the pants of true architects...( i hate math....i can only manage long division and i like the remainder sign )...all people who understand math are
EVIL and want stock in the world bank and want to take over the world....from now on..anyone with a math book, or a slide rule in their pocket must be denied service at every dairy queen in america...it is time
to save the canadian and american culture from what is obviously a bolivian

Anyone with a slide rule in their pocket has probably just stolen it from a museum.
