I tried to detect the line which cause the "hang" of Mozilla FireFox and....I 
just found the solution 5 minuts ago...

The following line is the author of the problem :

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="pmathml.xsl"?>

If you change it to :

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="mathml.xsl"?>

there is no more problem !!???

But, I must admit that I don't know why ??

Just look whith FireFox :


Because you're the author of this stylesheet, you may have an idea ?

However, congratulation for this work !!
