I can live with JPEG.

This sounds very much like what I have in mind.

The HTML+applets solution doesn't work well for me. I use a Macintosh Netscape
browser and your Java applets work poorly in that environment: deadly slow
and only partial rendering of the equations.
In another vein how efficient is MathML as a transport mechanism over
networks? I was wondering whether its verbosity might make it too slow for
those with narrow bandwidth to the Internet (sort of like Postscript).
How does it compare with HTML+equations rendered as images.
Also will might MathML's relative complexity lead to buggy implementations,
tending to a babel of mutually incomprehensible dialects?
