TinyMCE ASCIIMATH Plugin for Plone
fullmarks.tinymceplugins.asciimath is a TinyMCE plugin for Plone to enter ASCIIMath in the TinyMCE Wysiwyg editor.

It is based on the TinyMCE plugin written by David Lippman as part of the IMathAS project: http://www.imathas.com/. A demo of the IMathAS version of the plugin is available here: http://www.imathas.com/editordemo/demo.html

For FullMarks (and Plone), the plugin has been modified to always render MathML and not use any fallbacks that generate images server-side. Instead it uses MathJax for cross-browser rendering of MathML.

Additionally it uses the latest version (ver 2.0) of the ASCIIMATH JavaScript library by Peter Jipsen available here: http://mathcs.chapman.edu/~jipsen/mathml/asciimath.html

This plugin was developed as part of the FullMarks project funded by the Shuttleworth Foundation, an open educational repository of model questions and answers. See http://www.fullmarks.org.za and http://github.com/fullmarks for more information.
