I'm using mozilla I built a few hours ago. The classical mechanics site look very nice. I did, however receive the errors described here: http://baldur.globalsymmetry.com/proprietary/com/wri/ch08.html To properly display the MathML on this page you need the following fonts: CMSY10, CMEX10, Math1, Math2, Math4. For further infromation see: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/fonts Among the fonts which I seem to be missin is the one used to display the imaginary coeficient in the MathML discussed below. You will find more discussion of my experiences with XML and Mathematica on the page I linked to above. I believe there is something which still needs to be done with my fonts, but I haven't had time to research it. If anyone knows the solution, I would really appreciate knowing. I've saw the same behavior from mozilla on XP as I do in Linux. The XP setup, doesn't have Mathematica installed, nor any Mathematica fonts. The Linux Box has everything I can think of installed. The display is a bit better on the XP system, but for the most part, the results are similar.
