They are named Mathematica* instead of Math*. The fonts used MathML pages are from Mathematica 4.1. You can download the 4.1 Math* fonts here (in your case, use the last link. Others should choose the appropriate link based on your OS) http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/systems/macintosh/general/latestfonts.html http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/systems/windows/general/latestfonts.html http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/systems/unix/general/latestfonts.html http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/systems/linux/general/latestfonts.html For more details on your issue, visit: www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/fonts -- Igor C.
