Math Typesetting for the Internet

Math In Web Pages
Many people are working on ways to make mathematical notation easier
to display on the web.
None of these methods is
without fault; most are in beta version, and most rely on the user (or web
page author) having particular software
and/or technical expertise. Don't let this
discourage you, however;
you might find an option here that suits your needs.
We recommend starting with the Swarthmore Summer Project for the Implementation of Mathematical
Software on the Web:
- SPIMSOW - Explore the capabilities of the new Web versions of Mathematica, Maple,
and MathView; with tutorials on configuring the software and on creating
your own Web notebooks using the software.
- WebEQ Equation
A java applet which processes math tags embedded in HTML code.
- MINSE -
Expressions specified in this system adapt to the type of media available.
- TTMath -
Uses HTML, TrueType Fonts, and TeX to achieve math symbols; readers must download font
package to view such pages.

A TeX and LaTeX viewer plug-in for Netscape and Internet Explorer. Windows only.
- Adobe Acrobat
Reader - Allows users to view, navigate, and print PDF files. Cross-platform.
- MathView -
Use this plug-in to view and interact with MathView files. From Waterloo
- nDVI - A DVI viewer plug-in for Netscape. Unix only.
- IDVI - A DVI viewer written in Java, which can be embedded in web pages.
