Win32 Binary Demo of MathML and a New Screenshot

Monday August 9th, 1999

David Fiddes of the MathML posted to the Mozilla MathML newsgroup with not only a new patch, but a binary demo for Win32, and a screenshot of MathML running on Linux (with a caveat regarding symbol drawing - see news post for more info).

I've been checking out the daily builds for a while now and I'm very impressed at how far Mozilla has come in the last few months. The recent builds are especially impressive. One question I have about Mozilla (or Gecko?) is how it renders pull-down or text boxes: They're huge. They are rendered smaller in the other browser. What gives? Is this a bug, uncompleted code, or do web pages I check define it nonstandardly?

heh heh. ;)

I think that MathML is done like this because it existed long before there was a standard for XML namespaces... now it would be something like <math:over> I guess.....

I've had a few emails about the binary being a debug version and it doesn't have the appropriate runtime libraries. You'll need the debug libraries from MSVC 5.

I can't find a set on the web anywhere and don't have them on my current machine :(

sorry, Dave

Thanks to Tobias Hofmann [<tobias.hofmann@bauing.uni-weimar.de>]I've found a set of debug dlls at <http://www.ndh.net/home/mschmitz/runtime.zip>

I've uploaded a set to <http://www.calm.hw.ac.uk/mathml/runtime.zip> In the future I'll do an optimised build ;)
