Images. Use the image tags.

Code: [Select]
Will give

If you want to size it, use the height or width command
Code: [Select]
[img height=200][/img]
to give

As for equations, there is no facility at this time despite promises of a software upgrade of this nature for some time now. All you can do is use the sup and sub tags to create superscript and subscript text.



Or v1=v2+v3

For additional help, google 'bb code' and look at sites like

Now, can you do something for us? Please make an effort to post in the appropriate forum. This is obviously a place to talk about earth's shape. Not how to use a computer.
