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.

Re: Category Theory 2011

Marcelo Aguiar is doing some great applications of category theory to combinatorics — generalizations of species, Hopf algebras and the like. I’m glad he was invited to speak. Everyone should take a peek at his huge book with Swapneel Mahajan.

Re: Category Theory 2011

Yes, I’m really pleased that he’s coming.

I’m also impressed at the filename of their 800-page book: a.pdf. It suggests that it’s the first in a series of 26.
