Are there mathematical fonts which solve problems like for example writing symbols higher than square root?

NOTE: I need Fonts because this is the only thing how I can put equations into my Keynote presentation (mac os x) and still make complex editing, but I also appreciate your software answers ;)

I'm afraid this question is rather too far off-topic for this website. The "mathematical software" referred to in the FAQ are more things like Mathematica, MatLab, various automatic theorem provers, and things like that. That said, you should take a look at this webpage at UOregon and this one at Harvard. –  Willie Wong Apr 9 '11 at 17:28
    
For future reference, I think this essentially software question would be much more appriopriate at a site like SuperUser.com or apple.stackexchange.com. –  Willie Wong Apr 9 '11 at 17:31
    
You may also be interested in LatexIt, which I've heard good things about. –  Willie Wong Apr 9 '11 at 17:35

A couple of places that give sample LaTeX fonts:

The LaTeX Font Catalogue,

A Survey of Free Math Fonts for TeX and LaTeX,

Lots more information at Fonts and TeX.

Are there mathematical fonts which solve problems like for example writing symbols higher than square root?

Do you mean this $\sqrt[\alpha]{\ \ \ \ }$?

Thanks for the answer, yes I mean this, where you can define alpha but also the base –  elhombre Apr 9 '11 at 13:10
