[de-HTMLised. - Max.] To: www-math@w3.org From: Patrice Treton <patrice.treton@ac-rouen.fr> Subject: [Moderator Action] Putting maths on the web X-Diagnostic: Mail coming from a daemon, ignored Hello, Here at last, Math on the web ! What a surprise when I found your page 'Putting mathematics on the Web with MathML' at http://www.w3.org/Math/XSL/. I immediately followed the instructions and could write a page with MathML, readable with Mozilla/Netscape 7 and Internet Explorer, as described. However, I met the following problems which are a bit annoying, as I whish I could use MathML on a regular basis from now on. - How can entities as é or ± be recognized ? As I write in french, having no accent is awkward even for ordinary text. What needs to be added to the example file below (I only use presentation MathML) ? I tried to add : PUBLIC '-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1 plus MathML 2.0//EN' 'http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/dtd/xhtml-math11-f.dtd' in the DOCTYPE part of the file below. It solves the problem for Mozilla, but not for IE which doesn't like it. - Is there a way to select MathPlayer as MathML renderer on IE, but CSS on Mozilla ? Or can one define an ordered list : MathPlayer first, CSS second, for instance ? - The attribute : display='block' isn't interpreted correctly with IE. Is this normal ? - Will the files pmathml.xls and pmathmlcss.xls change in the future ? If so, could there be a 'official' web page, where we could check the version and download them if necessary ? Thanks, Patrice Treton Math teacher. ---------------------- Sample xml with MathML ------------------------- <?xml version='1.0'> <xml-stylesheet type='text/xsl' href='pmathml.xsl'?> <!DOCTYPE html [<!ENTITY mathml 'http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML'>] > <html xmlns='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml'> <head> <title>MathML tests</title> </head> <body> <h2>MathML tests</h2> <p>OK with IE and Mozilla <math xmlns='&mathml;' display='inline'> <mfrac> <mi>a</mi> <mi>b</mi> </mfrac> </math> </p> <p>OK with Mozilla, wrong with IE</p> <math xmlns='&mathml;' display='block'> <mfrac> <mi>a</mi> <mi>b</mi> </mfrac> </math> <p>Wrong with both :<br /> French e : é<br /> Plus-minus : ± </p> </body> </html>Received on Saturday, 2 November 2002 14:10:45 UTC
