Math Authoring for the Web Made Easier
This article was written using a new stylesheet which provides a hybrid of XHTML with some new elements intended to reflect LaTeX-like document structure. Most of the elements familiar from XHTML are available here, as is nearly all of SVG. Instead of remapping MathML, though, the embedding interface for Content Pseudo-TeX (CPT) is provided, with special tags. Also included are: topmatter formatting, including automatic generation of the table of contents, with internal linking; LaTeX-like elements for definitions, theorems, proofs, and similar environments; automatic numbering of sections, equations, and figures; basic citation formatting, including internal reference annotations; and identifier referencing with automatic internal page linking for citations and numbers.
Warning: The Java plug-in version 1.6.0 updates 10 and 11 have a bug which, in this article, prevents math expressions from rendering correctly. To correct this problem, you should download and install update 12. The alternative would be to disable the "next generation" plug-in in the Java Control Panel.
