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.

itex2MML Plugin Update

I’ve updated my itex2MML plugin to version 0.7. This fixes a bug where some people were getting an error of the form

open2: fork failed: Resource temporarily unavailable at [path_to_MovableType]/plugins/ line nn

on rebuilding an entry which uses MathML.

The itex2MML executable is unchanged from the January 1 version.

Re: itex2MML Plugin Update


I was just wondering - I have the misfortune of being stuck on a Windows machine, and have been trying to compile the itex2MML program using the Cygwin environment, but I keep getting the following:
gcc -c -o error: parse error before string constant warning: data definition has no type or storage class
make: *** [] Error 1

You wouldn’t happen to have any idea why this occurs, would you? I’m using GCC 3.3.1, in case you’re wondering.

Re: itex2MML Plugin Update

Oops, figured out what the problem was! Commenting out line 6 in, i.e, the one that begins with
__IDSTRING(yyrcsid, "$NetBSD: skeleton.c,v ...
suffices to get rid of the errors, and the code then compiles and runs just fine. Sorry about that.

Re: itex2MML Plugin Update

James Graham had some related compilation problems on Linux. I’ve posted a new, cleaned-up version of the distribution which should clear up these compilation problems.

If you don’t mind, try downloading it and seeing whether it compiles under Cygwin.
