Since towr's method for inserting symbols requires you to know the symbol's name, I've prepared a list of all the symbols available and their names (with the exception of int_backup.gif, which is a second copy of the int image). For the font characters, replace the "*" in the name of the font with the lowercase letter desired. For instance, the code for is $scra$. For lowercase italic letters, the letter is the entire name: $x$ gives you . The same is true for the greek letters, except you need to give the full name of the letter: $pi$ for . There is no image for the greek letter omicron. Use ($o$) instead.  
 
The symbols smiley_up and smiley_down at this time cannot be loaded using towr's script, as it does not currently recognize "_" as a valid name character. They can be obtained using the image tags directly, however.
 
[ edit ]I notice that there are two arrow codes without pictures: biglongdownarrow and biglonguparrow. This is because there are no such codes. Their inclusion was a mistake on my part.[ /edit ]

What about posts made with towr's old formula maker?  A couple I can recall working on have no indication of what the fromula is anymore, such as Abel's Wire Problem and Elevator Paths.   After posting a solution I thow away any records of what was done, assuming I can always look it up here.

The problem with those posts is that the images were stored on towr's site. For whatever reason, those images are no longer accessible. The same cause is why certain avatars never show up anymore.

My database has been out of order for a while. The few times I mentioned it to our systems administrator he forgot to do anything about it.
I suppose I could try and see if I can dig it out of one of the dumps of the database.

Since this thread has so much stuff in it that no longer applies, I've removed it from "active" status, in favor of SMQ's new FAQ thread detailing his excellent script. Please reply to that thread with any new comments.
