Hi Ken,

I think Charles as said it all already. He just skipped MathPlayer from
DesignScience. It's a pluggin for IE with TTS capabilities too (in version
2.0).

About the basic introduction, well I like the 1st book on MathML: The MathML
Handbook, Pavi Sandhu, Charles River Media 2003.

You have it all in there. It's nice to read and very complete.
Regards,

    Helder

> Hello.  We are just upgrading to Moodle (open source Learning Management
System).  I will tap into the community to find out more about this.  To be
entirely honest, I need to develop a better understanding of MathML and
which web browsers best support it.  Do you have any suggestions for a good
tutorial or introductory article?
