creating formatted equations, sub/superscripts

I need to put some formatted equations into an applet I'm working on. Can anyone give me pointers for how to create subscripts, superscripts, and fraction bars? I have searched with all the terms I can think of and come up with nothing. (I don't need to parse the equations, they will be hard-coded).

Thank you!! Karen.

There's HotEqn, which is an applet that can display formulas given to it in a TeX-ish notation. It doesn't come with source, though, but may be a starting point.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.

It's not a secret anymore!
