I don't know of a full solution for editing mathematical text in Squeak.
It used to be possible to embed morphs into text. Does anyone know
if this is still possible? If so, how do you do it? Scamper uses this
facility internally, but I don't know how to do it as a normal user.
If it's still possible, then you could use Latex to generate PS or PDF,
then convert those into GIF. Squeak can load GIF's! Load a GIF
from a File List, and you'll have a morph which can then be embedded
into text. (Assuming that the answer to the previous question was
positive.)
Another approach you can try, if you have a lot of time on your hands
to experiment with this, is to try the equation editors made by college
students one semester at Georgia Tech. You'll have to file them in and
see whether any of them work in the Squeakland image, but here they
are if you are that interested:

(scroll down to "summer 2000")
Some of them look nice, but I haven't tried them myself.
