This would do away with the need for using a separate mimeTeX binary executable. A possible drawback is that there are probably some incompatibilities between the dialects of TeX supported by the two systems. Thus switching to a JSMath based filter might break some existing course content.
Any thoughts, Martin, Gustav, Andreas?
Have you tried a quick filter to convert ... format to these <div> tags?
I also needed to make some changes in the print_header() and print_footer() functions in weblib.php
this looks quite good.
(1) Why are the formulas sometimes truncated at the bottom? (see example pages, for instance: http://www.math.union.edu/~dpvc/jsMath/examples/Henrici.html)
(2) Could it be a problem that users should better install new fonts?
But if we switch to it, I will work for the reference documents again
There's a usefulness to your script that I too would hate to see lost -- turning an equation into a picture you're 100% guaranteed you'll get exactly the same thing out of the other end, and it works through email. How about just adding this on with another set of tags for the time being to beta test it?
i also got the impression that in order to see
everything properly one HAS TO install the fonts.
