When you write your formula, you will see that any x symbols show up in formula script. That means no extra formatting is required between typing the formula and publishing the completed work. This is ideal if youve ever wanted to label a chart with its mathematical formula.
Formatting a spreadsheet is something that can be a personal choice in particular colour schemes, or how busy the spreadsheet is, but one should always keep in mind the user, and how easy it is for a new user to follow your spreadsheet. In summary keep it neat, simple and adhere to predefined formats to eliminate any slow down or errors in formulas due to incorrect cell formatting.
This may sound a little unfair. After all, a standard Microsoft installation would include something called Equation Editor. Suffice to say, it wasnt advertised in the promotional videos. Software like Matlab was considered vastly superior and had the added advantage that you could analyze the equations as well. Anyway, the good news is that Microsoft has taken a big step forwards with Office 2010 and its now possible to correctly display formulas in a pretty painless fashion.
Experienced Excel users will appreciate that textboxes default to having a border and white background. Thats because they are often used to add comments or guidance to a user and so have to stand out. Otherwise a user would be foolish not to type words directly into the spreadsheets cells. As equations can only be created in textboxes, the default settings are somewhat different; there is no border and no fill.
