At last a good question! MINSE seems like a viable quick hack to deliver
math to non standard compliant browser (e.g. IE). But the web site does
not seem to have been updated since 1996 (if it has, please reflect this
in the footer otherwise it's completly useless) and why, OH WHY, don't
you release MINSE under a free license like the GLP?

If you have IP problems, just one advice : adapt or perish!

About MathType, quoting Mr Miner:

Good, you did your bit of advertising. But whatever you can say,
MathType is still a closed, proprietary, non cross-platform, slow,
expensive product. I still have to meet someone writing real maths with
a tool like MathType.
