ASCIIMathML project is a very simple way to put math on HTML pages (easy "LaTeX").

ASCIIMathML is a script that converts calculator-style ASCII math notation (and many LaTeX formulas) to Presentation MathML while your Web page loads.

It works with HTML and XHTML files in Mozilla/Firefox/Netscape 7+ browsers, as well as in Internet Explorer 6 with MathPlayer.

For example, the solutions for the equation 'ax^2+bx+c=0' are expressed in the HTML file as '(-b +- sqrt(b^2 - 4ac))/(2a)', and display as nicely formatted MathML.

The script can be easily used in wikiservers and blogs, as a rudimentary MathML editor (with instant preview), and to preview math formulas as they are typed into a Web page input area.

· The ASCIIMathML.js script enables users to easily include mathematical formulas and graphs in Web pages (simplified LaTeX and graphics commands are converted to MathML+SVG while the Web page loads).

· The license is now GNU LGPL.

· The script produces interactive graphs that readers of the Web page can change locally.

· It now easily integrates in course management systems like Moodle.

· A new auto-math-recognize mode has been added. MathML text labels can be included on SVG graphs, and the SVG cursor tracking in Firefox has improved.

· A scientific calculator with MathML preview is included.
