Go to the World Tools product page to see screen shots, download a trial, and learn all the neat things InDesign can do with typesetting world languages. In-Tools also makes the free ScriptBay: If you use scripts with InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, or any of the other Creative Suite apps, you need this freebie Scripts panel replacement.
>> MathMagic, the ultimate equation editor from Info Logic, Inc., is a WYSIWYG equation editor/plug-in that lets you create inline, editable EPS equations from within InDesign (if you use the MathMagic Pro edition).
