    I tried to enter an equation containing pi and phi. The following code displays properly in firefox and ie. However, the wordpress blog displays p and f, instead of the symbols pi and phi.

    Here's the code fragment.

    <font face="Symbol">p</font> <font face="Symbol">f</font>
    &#960

    for phi use &phi; for lower case and &Phi; for upper. For pi find a image or use MathML.

    I found that I could display symbols with varying degree of success. In a standard stripped down html file I had success with both firefox and ie. However, within the context of a wordpress blog post, I could display the symbols properly in ie, but not firefox.

    This simple html works for works.
    <HTML>
    <BODY>
    <p><font face="Symbol">p</font></p>
    <p><font face="Symbol">f</font></p>
    <p>&phi</p>
    </BODY>
    </HTML>

    However, if you embed the following symbols in a wordpress post, it will work in ie, but not firefox. I prefer firefox however. Any suggestions as what to do?

    <p><font face="Symbol">p</font></p>
    <p><font face="Symbol">f</font></p>
    <p>&phi</p>

    Sorry for the delay, but are you putting the semicolon (;) right after the i? that is why it would not work in your example.
