I was hoping that by now there would be a set of math glyphs that could
be dragged and dropped around a screen--possibly firefox, possibly OOo
or abiword--to show a set of equations for any number of purposes.  

Last years I found that I could create something close with OO "Math",
but it required typing by keyboard.  D and Drop: nope.  There are new
Firefox apps that look hopeful.
