MathML, Mozilla, fonts and Mathematica 5.2

I'm running SuSE 9.3 on a P4. IIRC, the fonts required to support MathML with Mozilla on Linux are not the same are are distributed with the more recent versions of Mathematica. I don't believe I needed to do this with Mathematica 5.2, but I put the fonts in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11 and ran the font font configuration script on them. The following demonstrates that X sees these fonts: $ xlsfonts | grep ^\-wri\- | wc -l 709 When I visit sites using MathML I get an error saying I don't have Math1, Math2 and Math4. I believe all of these are fonts from Wolfram Research. I really, really, really do not want to have two sets of Mathematica fonts installed on the same system that I run Mathematica on. Is there a way to get Mozilla to see the newer fonts? This is an example of a site that causes the error message to appear: http://www.w3.org/Math/testsuite/ For some reason it did not appear when viewing the set of tests under General->Math, but it appeared when I looked at the tests under General->GenAttribs. Many MathML renderings work fine in Mozilla. The biggest problem has to do with Matrices. The braces are rendered as normal parentheses of one row height. -- "Philosophy is written in this grand book, The Universe. ...
