For more than 10 years, InfoLogic has been developing MathMagic, an XTension for QuarkXPress 3/4/5/6/7/8 that simplifies the process of building mathematical equations. MathMagic has an interface similar to the Equation Editor in Microsoft Word, but is far more powerful.
You can work with it directly in QuarkXPress, or export to EPS, GIF, JPEG, PICT, TeX, and PDF formats.
Prices range from $199 to $695, but for short-term projects, a one-month license is available for $10 to $50.
