How do you write equations on cfd-wiki?

Is there a free tool for writting the pages off-line?

For some more introduction material on CFD-Wiki equations you can look at for example:

On Windows the most common distribution is MikTex ( and on Linux/Unix the most common distribution is TeTex ( There is also a new project which might be better to use, I haven't tried it yet. It is called Tex Live (
