Hello all~
I am new to this listserv and need your assistance with the Math ML 
symbols for a calculus course I am helping construct in WebCT. In short, 
the problem is around the "0" that is in a composite function like f o 
g...It is too BIG!
When the appropriate symbol is used it looks like an "o" that is too big 
and I worry that students taking this online course will call it "fog". 
According to the MathML language this is the appropriate symbol but it 
is not the appropriate size as the "o" that appears in a textbook. 
Does any of this make sense?
What are/is possible solutions?

Thanks for your time!
