<p>The fonts that "map the same as Cambria Math" are the unicode math fonts. There are very few available if I rely on the readme file of the experimental <a href="http://github.com/wspr/unicode-math" rel="nofollow"><strong>unicode-math XeTeX package</strong></a>. There are Cambria Math, Asana Math, Neo Euler and a non yet available STIX font.</p>
<p>I just tried that unicode-math package on a my Mac on which VMware Fusion is installed and also Microsoft Office 2007 with Cambria Math (under Windows XP Professional). Here is what I get (I formatted the equations with standard TeX commands).<br />

Here are the same equations with the Fourier package that I use almost daily with pdftex (Fourier is a Type 1 font)<br />

That tells you how the fonts look (with XeTeX for the unicode fonts and pdftex for Fourier).</p>
<p>Now it is unclear how to get the equations out of Word 2007. Those equations can't even be read by Word 2008 on OS X. I tried some software that purportedly translates them to LaTeX, but without much success. Does anyone know if there is a reliable tool to take equations from a Word 2007 document and process them with some other software?</p>

<p>You can download <a href="http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/Asana-Math/" rel="nofollow"><strong>Asana-Math</strong></a> and see if it can be good for you. I have never tried it. </p>
<p>PS Here is a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asana-Math" rel="nofollow">Wiki stub</a> on Asana-Math.</p>
