How to use MathPlayer for displaying MathML
Version: 4.x - Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, & Scientific Notebook
MathMLMathematical Markup Languageis changing the way mathematics appears on the web. MathML is a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Recommendation for meaningfully encoding mathematical content. Just as HTML provides meaningful text on the Web, MathML provides meaningful mathematics. In Version 4 and later of SWP, SW, and SNB, you can automatically encode mathematics in MathML when you export your document to HTML.
Although MathML is developing rapidly, support for it is developing more slowly. Current browsers are unlikely to display a formula that has been marked up with MathML. But new plug-in viewers, such as MathPlayer from Design Science, allow many browsers to display MathML.
MathPlayer works in IE5.5 and higher on Windows. It successfully displays MathML-encoded mathematics in SWP, SW, and SNB documents that have been exported to HTML. Version 5.x is configured to use MathPlayer to render MathML. Follow these instructions to try MathPlayer in Version 4.x:
You can find a list of other plug-in viewers for MathML at http://www.w3.org/Math/.
