I want to write some mathematical expressions in a web page and I really like the font used in Word 2007 equations; I want to use it but I don't know its name; can anybody help me, please?


The font used in the Equation editor of Microsoft Word 2010 is called:

Cambria Math

It is available on a typical Windows 7/8 installation and I presume XP.

Hope I helped. :D

Note: The font is also italicized in some cases.

  • In that case, if you could upvote and accept my answer, respectively clicking the grey up arrow and the green tick, to facilitate other users from benefiting from this. :D

  • Cambria Math is available (in somewhat different versions as regards to character coverage) on Windows Vista and newer, but not XP, see microsoft.com/typography/fonts/font.aspx?FMID=2113 Feb 14 '14 at 13:40
  • Cambria Math has no italic typeface. When using Equation Tools, Word automatically changes e.g. the letter “x” to a different character, U+1D465, MATHEMATICAL ITALIC SMALL X, which is inherently italic. This is one of the reasons that make Cambria Math very problematic on web pages. Feb 14 '14 at 13:45
