Using MathML can, unfortunately, be a bit daunting at first. Are the browsers you will be using able to display MathML? Not all versions of all browsers are. You also have to have your content as HTML. It needs to be declared as the right kind of stuff for it to work. I have been searching for an easy way to write MathML and I cannot find one, but I am on Mac OS X and there may be tools on other platforms. As far as the document structure, I am seeing this in the test cases in the Mozilla repository used for testing Firefox. Note the "xml" file extension. Firefox, for one, needs this. Hope this helps. cheers - ray % % cat simple.xml <?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1 plus MathML 2.0//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/dtd/xhtml-math11-f.dtd" [ <!ENTITY mathml "http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML"> ]> <!-- ***** BEGIN LICENSE BLOCK ***** - Version: MPL 1.1/GPL 2.0/LGPL 2.1 (stuff added here...) - - ***** END LICENSE BLOCK ***** --> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head> <title>Simple Document with MathML</title> </head> <body> <math xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML"> <mrow> <mi>x</mi> <mo>=</mo> <mi>y</mi> <mo>+</mo> <mfrac> <mi>a</mi> <mi>b</mi> </mfrac> </mrow> </math> </body> </html> % %Received on Thursday, 12 February 2009 20:22:19 GMT
