You are right, sorry. Let me clarify at the bottom.

I used IE 9 and cleared browsing history. After that I went to http://www.mathjax.org/demos/mathml-samples/ and selected MathML, since that would be integrated into the specs. But when I do that, I get the pop up that the MathPlayer plugin in is required. Which is obviously not the case, since the homepage does include MathML content as well.

Greetings,
Dirk
