MathML and Browsers
Web-based applications such as WebCT are limited by the capabilities of the supported browsers, which currently are Netscape and Internet Explorer. The WebCT community is aware that a feature of WebCT can work perfectly in Netscape and bomb out in Internet Explorer, or the other way round. During this last year AOL purchased Netscape so the development of Netscape is now in different hands. It has been reported that Netscape 6, which is already available in a prerelease version, will be based on some milestone of Mozilla.

Mozilla.org coordinates the development and testing of Mozilla by providing discussion forums, software engineering tools, releases and bug tracking. At milestone 15 , there is currently available for Win32 a MathML enabled self extracting archive (6.6 MB) and for Linux an archive file, i386 tar.gz format with MathML (5.6 MB). A Progress Report on the Implementation of MathML in Mozilla was issued on April 14, 2000. I summarize this report here. The MathML Project has been steadily progressing ever since it started in mid-May 1999. Scientific software A significant event to the MathML project came from the contribution of Shyjan Mahamud who taught TeX rendering rules to the MathML engine. To answer a question frequently asked, the MathML component was the first Mozilla component entirely driven from outside of Netscape, with no commitment from Netscape to include the component in its next release. Those who have been following the MathML project have come to realize how picky and nontrivial MathML is. Whether MathML can formally make it in the next Netscape release is best left as hopelessly hopeful. MathML is not yet part of the default build in Mozilla. Because no major browser supports MathML as yet, MathML content is scarce on the web. But as more people try out the Mozilla code, they produce additional practical examples to showcase the capabilities of the MathML renderer and generate interest.
