Hi. > I'm building a Q&A forum for an academic course in Applied Mathematics in > Tel-Hai collage, Israel. > The forum runs on a Perl cgi software that creates HTML pages dynamically. > I'd like to use MathML in there to enable students to write questions with > math signs. What should I do? One possibility would be to use WebEQ components to hook in an equation editor, and back-end MathML processing. This isn't completely trivial, but since you already developing the forum software, it should be relatively easy for you. You can see a demo message board that I set up this way at http://www.webeq.com/technotes That basic steps are to embed the WebEQ Input Control somewhere in your UI to get the math from posting authors. Then I use JavaScript to submit the MathML generated by the Input Control along with the form data. The perl script that catches the data execs the WebEQ Equation Server to convert the MathML into PNG images, and stores the images and HTML in a database. Of course, one could also sotre just the MathML and do the image generation at the time of a page request containing equations. You can get a 30-day eval copy of WebEQ from http://www.dessci.com/dl/webeq.stm if you are interested in playing around with it. --Robert ------------------------------------------------------------------ Robert Miner RobertM@dessci.com MathML 2.0 Specification Co-editor 651-223-2883 Design Science, Inc.
