HTML is not a scripting language; it can't do any arithmetic. If you wish to
use mathematical operator to work out a value to be printed on your page you
need to use a scripting language like VBScript or JavaScript.

    It's really two simple questions:

    Which mathematical operator are allowed in HTML? and
    Is there any way to set numerical variables in HTML?
