Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Feedback for Urs

One of the things about a new medium is that it will almost inevitably find new, unanticipated, uses. I’m excited about the MathML-enabled weblog as a medium for physics research. How exactly that will pan out remains to be seen, but over at the String Coffee Table, Urs Schreiber is trying an experiment.

Back in medieval times, when you were preparing a paper, you might mail paper copies of a draft version to your friends to get some comments. In modern times, you might email those same friends a PDF file. Whichever the medium, the distribution-list is necessarily limited.

Urs is working on a paper. Hoping for feedback from a wider audience than he could get by (e)mailing around a draft, he has posted parts I and II to the weblog. So head on over, read his draft, and give him some feedback.
