I use screenshots from Math SE to add math -formulae to my DOCX -file but it is irritating when other people do not realize that my programs cannot read mathematical formulae in DOCX -format. I tried Pages -program in iPad but the support for math -formulae broken so how can I read DOCX -files with Windows-formated-math-formulae in iPad?

You can find an example here where the formulae are broken, meaning that I need either to go to my campus or to use some program that is able to read the formulae from DOCX -file.

This question should have been asked on Meta, not here on Math SE. I also do not think we need a tag for ipad here. –  Per Manne Oct 2 '12 at 16:10
@PerManne I added the tag because I want to get a subscription from all questions relating to iPad, currently not possible but with tag it becomes possible. I cannot understand why Meta, we have similar-slanted questions under Soft-question and Math-software. –  hhh Oct 2 '12 at 16:13
Your link example does not work (access denied). Since DOCX is essentially just XML, I am sure there is some suitable piece of software out there. Then again, I've had a document that repeatedly became corrupt after a few days working with it even under MS Word 2010 only - and always inside the same simple math formula ... –  Hagen von Eitzen Oct 2 '12 at 16:24
@HagenvonEitzen very odd, I can read the link even in Incognito -mode, I cannot understand why the link does not work for you. I use Google Chrome. –  hhh Oct 2 '12 at 16:25
@hhh: I renamed (electronics) to (hardware) to be less ambiguous. (electronics) can refer to mathematics used in analysis of electronic circuits, and stuff like signal analysis, fourier transforms, and such. –  Willie Wong Dec 14 '12 at 11:31
