MS Office Series: Equation/Math Font

The article here lists out the fonts available that look much better than Cambria Math.

In summary, three other nice fonts that work with Microsoft Office’s new Equation Editor (these are compatible with Office 2007 or later):
  • XITS Math is somewhat compatible with Times (download here).
  • Asana Math is compatible with Palatino (download here) and if you don’t have Palatino, you can download it here, among other places
  • Latin Modern is the LaTeX font of choice. There is a math font (download here) and a whole family of text fonts (download here). Note: these may not look good on screen, but they look just perfect when printed.
