Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. 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.

itex to MathML

Well, as you can see from my two previous posts, I figured out how to do text filtering in MovableType 2.6.

I now have a plugin which offers two conversions: itex to MathML and itex to MathML with parbreaks. The former is a straight itex2MML conversion. The latter uses the “TeX” (or blogger’s) convention that two consecutive newlines start a new paragraph. (The bloggers also like the convention that a single newline inserts a <br />, but that would almost certainly mess up any heavy-duty TeX equation input.)

I will blog with them for a while, and if I don’t uncover any major bugs, will release the plugin for public consumption.

Update: You can download the plugin or peruse the README file. And what do y’all think of the garish MathML logo?
