Readers of this mailing list may be interested in a JavaScript program that I wrote to dynamically translate ASCII math formulas (and some LaTeX) into presentation MathML. I have not been able to test it on a variety of hardware or software, so I would be interested to hear if (and how well) it works for others. Take a look at http://www.chapman.edu/~jipsen/wikimath.xml to see if your browser handles the XHTML+pmathml.xsl+JavaScript combination. For example if you type `(-b+-sqrt(b^2-4ac))/(2a)` on a XHTML page that uses this script and view it in IE6+MathPlayer or Mozilla/NS7 you should see the familiar solutions to the quadratic equation in nicely formatted MathML. (The left-quotes `...` are essential. They take the place of the LaTeX $...$ but are visually less distracting when typing the math.) Regards, Peter Jipsen
