I can’t do better than an answer from Design Science itself; but just wanted to add that we recently went through the same thing, and can echo what Mr. Soiffer says below. Using MathPlayer 3.0 PR1 with IE9 gives consistently solid results. Since it’s not explicitly stated, we recommend using Design Science’s MathType application to generate the MathML itself.

If you are using MathPlayer 2.2,  you either need an object and import tag (see [1]), or you need to serve the page as XHTML.  If you use MathPlayer 3 PR1, you don't need that.

IE9 messes up the DOM if you have an empty tag (e.g., "<mspace/>"); MathPlayer 3 PR1 tries to patch the DOM up, so I strongly recommend you get MathPlayer 3 PR1 if you don't have it.  It does work pretty well with IE9.

I am having great difficulty writing maths for presentation on IE 9.
I have been able to present on Firefox, using the <math>, <frac>, etc..
 The same code does not work on IE9. I have searched but much of the returns are years old.
I have tried loading MathPlayer advertised for IE 6 + without success.
An up-to date "howto" site would be appreciated.
