Zach,
In the work I've done my goal has been to make a browser interface based
on completely free and open source software and standards, which I realized

`was a possibility when I noticed Firefox supported MathML and SVG. If
``another
``browser supports these standards then anything I do should be easily
``transferable.
``I understand that there is a plugin (Mathplayer I think) that enables
``MathML in
``IE. However IE is not free and open source software so I don't code
``specifically
``for IE on my volunteer time. I also have heard that Opera has
``implemented some
`sort of MathML support but I haven't looked into it.
