Those of you (like me) struggling with word to create equations might be interested in the links below:

A feature of Word I’ve discovered that makes it really quick and easy to enter mathematical symbols is to turn on the Maths Autocorrect. This allows you to enter text such as \nabla and it will quickly turn it into for you. See the list of maths autocorrects at http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/word-help/math-autocorrect-symbols-HA010064598.aspx.

Also see http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/linear-format-equations-and-math-autocorrect-in-word-HA101861025.aspx which explains about equation formatting using the Alt-Ctrl + key combination.

Of course the other useful key combinations are Shift-Ctrl + which toggles superscript font, and Ctrl + which does the same for subscript. The Ctrl-I for italic, and Ctrl-B for Bold you must surely already know 🙂
