It is now easy to include complex equations in messages with the new $dBCode. It uses the LaTeX language to express equations in a simple syntax which becomes the actual equation in your message. For example, this latex code: [latex]\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}$
Becomes this:
$\color{white} \frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}$
NASA has some useful on-line help:
Some detailed documentation can be found here:
There's also an entry for the Latex dBCode in the help for dBCodes:
