This is not a Stata question, therefore I hope that the inquiry will be
permitted. I am searching for inexpensive (or freeware)
statistical/mathematical fonts/symbols that can be used in a word
document. The basic symbols currently available are not nearly adequate.
For example, the bracket isn't large enough to accomodate even one
ratio. Same with the summation symbol, etc...

I've searched the web for this, but I haven't been able to find any.

Available for any kind of hardware/software, free, no proprietary binary formats, and doesn't make your math look like 3rd grade homework, unlike MS Word on its best behavior.
