MathML! Very educational post!

August 30th, 2004

Some people find it hard to believe that it’s very possible to have a page using a combination of MathML and XHTML while still being able to view the page in Internet Explorer (albeit not the math itself). Well, here it is... I present to you the ABC formula to resolve the value of x where a x 2 + b x + c = 0 :

x = b ± b 2 4 a c 2

Currently the only browsers (to my knowledge) supporting MathML are the Gecko-based browsers such as Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla, and Netscape, Camino, etc. So if you’re mathematically endowed, one more reason to Get Firefox :).

Note: this MathML was created using Open Math Edit.
