* Note that the markup language of these files is XHTML containing MathML to nicely display mathematics, so you need a browser that can correctly render this. Most recent standards-compliant browsers (Firefox, Opera, Safari, Konqueror, Mozilla,...) do, provided you install some math-fonts. Internet Explorer unfortunately still does not. You can try to use the Mathplayer plug-in in this case.
