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.

Google Summer of Code

Are you a (graduate or undergraduate) student with some free time this summer? Wanna earn $4500 doing a great public service? Google Summer of Code will pay you a stipend to work on WebKit. Among the project ideas listed, the one most relevant to readers of this blog is the project to bring MathML support to WebKit.

If you’ve tried reading this blog in Safari, or on an iPhone, you know how great that would be.

Just don’t let someone cajole you into settling for a stylesheet.

Re: Google Summer of Code

Did any GSOC’08 students work on adding MathML to Webkit in the end?

Re: Google Summer of Code

AFAIK, there was at least one proposal to work on that. None were accepted.
