Someone has sent me to translate an MS doc containing equations written
with MathType. On opening it in Writer the equations often get garbled due,
I guess, to the lack of the appropriate fonts required to display them.
(If relevant I'm using LibreOffice under Linux Mint 17.)  Is it
possible to get the fonts?

As a second question, is there any way in which one can edit MathType
equations in Writer?  I guess the answer is no.

As someone who frequently is asked to translate mathematical papers (from
Slovak to English) which are written in Word (MS Office rules in this neck
of the woods even in academia) I usually have to resort to getting my other
laptop out, which has Windows on it as LO simply cannot cope reliably with
equations produced in Word.  I guess it is almost certainly asking for far
too much for compatibility here.  Before somebody asks why academics are
writing mathematical papers in Word and not in Latex, I guess it's because
MS provide the universities with cheap versions of Office and so lock them
in, but then I could be wrong.
