I worked with Microsoft Equation 3.0 in Word.
But I have never worked with TeX package.

I have read man tex. However I need any sample of invocation and using tex.
For instance, how to create that : news://$6vr$ ?

You'll never learn TeX from the man page. That'll only tell you how to invoke the tools. I think it's fair to say the TeX document preparation is an art. Certainly a skill, and not one easily come by, for the most part. And certainly WYSIWYG it ain't! (Though for all I know there are WYSIWYG front-ends for synthesizing TeX equations.)

There's tutorial information out there, but I'm not qualified to make suggestions. Search the net.
