{EMBED Equation.3}?equation editor

Greetings,

Microsoft Equation Editor 3.0 has been working fine for months with WORD

2000. That is, when I opened the Editor, the equation toolbar would

appear on the actual document and I could enter the equation and have it

show up WISIWIG style on the document. Suddenly, all that has changed.

Now when I open the Editor, it opens in a separate window into which I

can enter the equation, but when I close the window all that appears in

the document is {EMBED Equation. 3}. The equation does appear in the

print preview, and it does print, but it was sure nice to have it as it

was before. The Editor behaves normally in my old WP. 6.1, as well as in

Excel 2000. The problem seems to be with WORD. Any suggestions would be

greatly (!!!) appreciated.

Thanks, Leon
