Hi,

MathPlayer, our high-performance MathML display engine for Microsoft's
Internet Explorer browser, is now available for free download at
http://www.dessci.com/webmath/mathplayer. 

After a few months in private beta, MathPlayer is ready to go public. We
call our current release of MathPlayer, "beta 3". We expect to announce the
final release of MathPlayer 1.0 at the MathML Conference in Chicago, June
28-30, 2002 (http://www.mathmlconference.org/2002). From now until that
time, we encourage you to download MathPlayer and try it out. We look
forward to your feedback.

Together with Mozilla and its built-in MathML support, and the Universal
MathML Style Sheet soon to be available at the W3C Math site
(http://www.w3.org/Math), the availability of MathPlayer makes MathML a
viable and useful vehicle for putting math on the web.

Design Science is making MathPlayer available for free download (in exchange
for an email address only) in order to help ensure the success of MathML in
the marketplace. We also plan to offer MathPlayer as a licensable component
for inclusion in web- and CDROM-based commercial products (e.g. distance
learning systems, textbook supplementary software packages) and for
situations in which it is desirable for it to be pre-installed (e.g. school
computer labs without Internet access).

Design Science also offers several products that aid in the creation of
MathML content:

WebEQ --- our collection of software tools for adding dynamic math to web
pages, including our WebEQ Editor for authoring MathML and WebEQ Input
Control for enabling math input in web pages.

MathType --- the professional version of the Equation Editor that comes with
Microsoft Office includes our MathPage technology for converting a Word
document containing math to a web page with MathML.

Visit our web site at http://www.dessci.com to learn more about these
products. You can read the full text of our press release at
