Hello! DC> yes (although I think the DS licence is a bit less restrictive than the DC> Wolfram one) Computer modern math fonts look a bit "thin" when used with DC> typical web text fonts such as times (which is why Wolfram comissioned a DC> new set for mathematica) but such typographic fine details are more an DC> issue for printing than for web browsers. My solution is just to use math { font-family: serif } In default CSS. In this case, Mozilla using Computer Modern fonts only for brackets, roots and other non-stadart symbols. Also, I found that without "math { font-family: serif }" old gecko's can replace normal letters into other special symbols. For example, ∫ (dx)/sqrt(x^3 + a*x + b) Written in MathML can be rendered as ∫ (dx)/sqrt(ζ^3 + α*ζ + β) Don't know why it is so, maybe the reason in the incorrect working with UTF-8 formulas, or in something else... Maybe, files in /res/fonts/ directory of gecko installation are incorrect... I found this on Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031120 Epiphany/1.0.6. See attached files. Of course, symbols in "sans" font families can be not as beauty as analogues in Computer Modern [see the integral symbols in the attached examples], but I think that we must support old geckos, if it is possible. Possibilities are using simple sans fonts or "delete invisible operators" options, we should use this possibilities. -- WBR, Alexey Beshenov.Received on Friday, 14 October 2005 17:38:12 UTC
