comment Is there a way to rewrite integrals in Mathematica using u substitution?
Well, I don't see why you can't adapt what I did to that case, using w-x->u.

How much simpler could it be? If you want to compute $\int x^2\,dx$ using the substitution $u = \cos x$ (I realize you wouldn't do this), write in Mathematica Integrate[ReleaseHold[x^2 HoldForm[D[x,u]]/.x->ArcCos[u]],u] and then resubstitute for $u$.

If I surround all of this with Integrate[...,u], it works for me. You should really be asking this on Mathematica.se

comment Creating centered inline cell in text cell
Yes, I noticed that as well. What I don't understand is that the palette element inserts an inline cell, so that constructs are built with inline visuals (for example, the limits on a sum are below and to the side, rather than above and below, the summation sign). And if I try to convert this to an equation style, either manually by editing the text in the notebook file or visually in the front end, the equal sign alignment is lost. I find document construction with Mathematica to be really difficult and not well documented. Is there a good discussion somewhere of how to do this?

comment Creating centered inline cell in text cell
@kguler Yes, that kind of works. It adds a new cell, which can then be merged with the text cells above and/or below and gives me pretty much what I want. However, it does seem to use inline styling rather than display styling (for example, limits on sums are to the right of the summation sign rather than above and below).

Well, that's always possible. I doubt it was modified manually, but it could have been imported from TeX. So you think there's no way of doing this in the front end?

@SimonWoods would you mind posting your comment as an answer? Otherwise I'll write my own answer and accept it.

Well, OK, but the CDF documentation ("Create CDF" in MMA docs) clearly shows an option to create a new CDF, in a screenshot. I guess you are right, though, but how can the docs be so wrong?
