Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Posted by Urs Schreiber

I just learned that the AEI in Potsdam-Golm hosts a workshop

This are the talks:

Iskander Taimanov (Novosibirsk)
Closed magnetic geodesics

Dennis Koh (Potsdam)
String action and Generalized Harmonic Maps

Christian Becker (Potsdam)
Sections and fibre integration in Deligne cohomology

Gerbe modules and gerbe bimodules

I had mentioned the topic of the last talk here.
