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.

itex2MML 1.02

William Morgan has released a Ruby port of itex2MML.

To celebrate, I’m releasing another minor update to itex2MML. In the new version:

  1. Fixed a compilation problem with flex 2.5.31.
  2. Added a “unary plus” to match “unary minus”, and improved the invocation of unary plus/minus (thanks, William)
  3. Fixed stretchy delimiters. “\left(” is stretchy. “(” is not stretchy. Similarly for other delimiters and their corresponding right delimiters. Left and right stretchy delimiters must be matched (as in TeX). As in TeX, \left( will match \right] and you can use the null delimiter (\left. and \right.).

I was never really happy with the way stretchy delimiters worked in itex2MML until now.

Anyway, itex2MML 1.02 contains MacOSX and Linux binaries, as well as the source to compile your own.

Re: itex2MML 1.02

Your RSS feed gives “William Morgan has released a” for the title of this posting, omitting “Ruby port of itex2MML”, no doubt because the latter is in an A tag.

There should be a function that recursively gets all the text needed in a heading, no matter how deep it is nested.

Bad title

This entry was initially posted without my having assigned it a title (as I mentioned, I’m not posting from my usual machine). The entry and the RSS feeds should all be fixed now. Try hitting “refresh” in your News Aggregator.
