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.
Unfortunately, that has never been the case and most university researchers would identify one big problem with the Office suite and that is why its always been difficult to present formulas in Word and Excel. Even when you type a simple fraction like 3/5, it gets presented on a single line. As for Greek symbols like , that would mean many hours wasted trawling through Excels Insert Symbol menu.
Keep to universal colours if you can, I find that black, white and grey colours work best, they look neat and professional but give the spreadsheet added value.
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.
