This remind me an interesting feature found in Word 5 for Mac (and
probably still in the other, at least for legacy purpose) that was
called function mode. It allowed entering basic formulae like sqrt(),
fraction, etc, inline. You did start with a special key-combo that put a
.\ then the function.
.\r(.\f(1,2),3) did make (1/2)^1/3 (cubic root of 1/2) properly
Really useful. This could prevent using a formula editor for lot of
common cases. It it did not require mouse either...
That would be interesting to have that in AbiWord... like the LaTeX
formula. And this would be XP.
