If you’re on Firefox 4+, Safari 5+ or Internet Explorer 9 with MathType Player 3, the text below with be a MathML representation of Planck’s Law.

If you want to replicate this you have to:

1. Paste the XML in the HTML code (i.e. NOT the WYSIWYG editor)
2. Make sure that the first line of the XML includes a link to the MathML namespace as follows:

<math xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML">

3. I also like to use CSS to bump the font size – those super/subscripts can get very tiny.

All I can say is – Wow. I wish all my CMS systems played this well with MathML.
