You've posted this same inquiry in several places, and everyone who has replied has offered you the same advice. Here it is again. If you want visitors to your site to see your mathematics, you must use GIFs. All the major mathematical sites use GIFs, because this assures that the average visitor will be able to see the equations. 1. Go to sites that posts equations (examples: www.wolfram.com, www.treasure-troves.com, as just two sites with a lot of equations). Notice that they use GIFs. 2. Save a Mathematica notebook as a Web page. Notice that the equations are automatically rendered as GIFs. 3. Learn how Web browsers work. Realize that, if you post anything besides GIFs, some (probably most) of your visitors will not be able to view your pages. Good luck! -- Paul Lutus www.arachnoid.com
