For TeX / LaTeX, there are packages for typesetting structral formulae
in various ways, one of them is called XymTeX. I never needed to typeset
formulae myself, though; but I've seen papers done with such packages,
they are professional quality (as most stuff done with TeX). And there's
no crippleware problem, the packages are available from any CTAN archive,
e.g. ftp.dante.de .
