Hi guys,I am writing my thesis using Microsoft Word 2007 and I am using the Equation Editor for adding my thesis formulas and equations. There is a letter-like symbol called "Double struck Capital E" which I cannot find in the Letter-like symbols of the Equation editor and I have no idea how I can find this character. Could anyone tell me how I can type this letter using "Microsoft Word 2007"? I don't have access to any other math-typing software.The following link shows what a double struck Capital E looks like. Just to remind you that I need this letter to represent the Expectation function.http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode ... /index.htm

Microsoft editor is alright but you'll have a lot of problems once you try to insert equation numbers and references.Also, have a look on aurora. this one lets you insert latex equation in the word document.And, for final, my suggestion would be to switch to latex all the way (if possible). Recently I wrote all my phd thesis in word 2007 and this is a pain once you start to think about structure, format and referencing system.If the cost to switch to latex wasn't so high in this point of the process, I would definatelly make the switch.

As mentioned, get Mathtype; it has Blackboard Bold, the font set you are looking for.
