After my recent posting on Tacos re Equations, I received the very 
helpful following message from Karl W4KRL
Word 2003 has a clunkier way of doing it:

1.    Click where you want to insert the equation.
2.    On the Insert menu, click Object, and then click the Create New tab.
3.    In the Object type box, click Microsoft Equation 3.0.
4.    Click OK.
5.    Build the equation by selecting symbols from the Equation toolbar 
and by typing variables and numbers. From the top row of the Equation 
toolbar, you can choose from more than 150 mathematical symbols. From 
the bottom row, you can choose from a variety of templates or frameworks 
that contain symbols such as fractions, integrals, and summations.
If you need help, click Equation Editor Help Topics on the Help menu.
6.    To return to Microsoft Word, click the Word document.

In Word 2007: choose the Insert menu, choose Equation, select "accent", 
select "bar". Hit the left arrow key to move cursor under the bar. Type 
in any number of characters. Hit the right arrow key to proceed.



It sounds clunkier than it is.
