Dan,
Curious that you would come to a TeX list for a question unrelated to
TeX. Your problems are due to the fact that MS does bizarre things in
its typesetting.
Big Parentheses are rendered as three characters- a "top" cap and
"bottom" cap, with an extendable middle section. Crude, but it works.
Your ellipsis problem is due to the lack of a specific unicode character
on the client side: U+F0BC, which is in the Unicode "Private Use Area"
(see
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mapping_of_Unicode_characters#Private_use_characters)
As for the greek letters coming up as squares.. I'm beat.
Why don't you try a web-based LaTeX math renderer? For instance, your
first big parentheses problem could be solved by entering this:
\begin{displaymath}
\frac{ mN \left ( 2 - 3 \dfrac{m}{N} - \dfrac{1}{N} \right )}
{ N^2 \left ( 1-\dfrac{m}{N}\right )
\left (1-\dfrac{(m+1)}{N}\right )}
= \frac{2m}{N}
\end{displaymath}
into here:

to get this (attached).
If you want to solve this problem using other means than TeX, it is
probably better to look elsewhere.
Ellipsis in LaTeX math mode is \ldots , by the way; greek letters are
such as \Alpha, \alpha, \Beta, \beta, ...
You're lucky I'm avoiding work right now.
Cheers,
-Brandon
