You can use the "textShift" property to move text above/below the baseline.
For example, make a field with 24 point font (I used Lucida Grande but you
can use what you want), and set the fixedLineHeight of the field to true.
Enter the equation like this:
y = 4 x + 2
(that's 7 spaces before the "5" on the second line, and note there are 2
spaces between the "=" and the "4" on the first line)
Then open the message box and type these commands:
set the textShift of char 1 to 3 of line 1 of fld 1 to 9
set the textShift of char 8 to 12 of line 1 of fld 1 to 9
set the textStyle of char 5 to 7 of line 1 of fld 1 to underline
set the textShift of char 8 of line 2 of fld 1 to -9
You get the idea... play around with the textShift and the margins of the
field, and you should get something you like.
