If you have access to Word, you could try opening your docx and downsaving to just .doc. I have found that with equations that sometimes gives better results. Having said that, for the educational books that I do, the requirement from the publisher is to re-make the equations properly in Illustrator.
Thanx for the reply.
I have tried saving as .doc but with the same results. I even tried to save the document to the "97-2003" format because I read the equations will be converted to image, but they are still editable to me. I got one step closer though, formating all equations with MathType using the "MathType preference file" Calibri+Symbol 11.eqp and the results ported are a little better.
In Illustrator you have to re-make them one by one?

Funny! [My apologizes!]
Some people make fractions in InDesign using two paragraphs with a para rule between the two, all in a small inline anchored text block!!
Personnally, I'm on MAC and have created my own process! [ Word/TeX/FrameMaker files >> InDesign with MathMagic! ]
Can you explain the "Word/TeX/FrameMaker files >> InDesign with MathMagic" method?
Maybe its just a font issue at the end.
Even MathMagic through Indesign wont accept the characters pasted.
The more I search the more confused I get.
