Hi.

I sympathize with your encoding woes.  It's a real pain for us too.

However, I wanted to comment specifically on the WebEQ part:

I think perhaps you mean MathPlayer.  The Input Control is an equation
editor applet, while MathPlayer adds MathML rendering to IE.  Its
MathPlayer that needs the class id in the header. The Input Control
needs applet tags.  Not that makes it any easier, since there's the
hassle of passing markup into the Input Control in an attribute.

You can use them both. You simply need both applet tags, and the
MathPlayer headers and namespace prefix.

We will have a MathPlayer 2 beta before too long that solves this
problem.  It will automatically filter incoming XHTML + MathML
documents into the HTML + MathPlayer code.  I'll would be happy to put
you on the beta list, if you would like.
