Including formatting and special characters (e.g. Greek or mathematical symbols)

Formatting and special characters can be included via the use of Markdown (HTML tags) or LaTex commands. Some commonly used tags are available in the abstract editor, for example bold and italic formatting. More comprehensive lists of tags are widely available online, for example here.
Some further examples of formatting and special characters, using HTML tags:
Superscript: text will give text
Subscript: text will give text
Lower case alpha: α will give α
Lower case pi: π will give π
To write eiπ - 1 = 0, you must type: ei π - 1 = 0
