interactive webMathematica scripts.

The wizards create webMathematica scripts from a list of
variables, a function, and an explanation.  The function can
be any Mathematica function that returns a graphic object or
an HTML script.  One can include webMathematica tags,
<%Mathlet  . . . %>, in the explanations.  This is useful, for
example, for creating embedded gif's of mathematical
expressions within your explanation.  There is a link to a
notebook containing definitions of webMathematica functions.

We invite people to play with these wizards.  You may view the
code for the script you create and save it to a file of your
own.  The scripts you create are purged from the server after
about two hours.
