ASCII-Math: Convert ASCII to MathML


This macro allows equations to be written in a simple text format using a subset of the ASCIIMathML syntax. When the page is requested, the ASCII text is transformed into MathML, which can be rendered in any capable browser: Firefox for sure, IE with the MathPlayer plugin, maybe Opera.

To create a MathML representation of the Pythagorean theorem:

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

and the resulting wiki page's source should now contain properly formatted MathML code for display:

For more information about formatting the ASCII code describing the equation, see the ASCIIMathML documentation. Some items might not display exactly as shown.

No other executables, modules, or plugins are necessary for this to work.

See for more info.
