Software requirements

The Azimuth Project displays mathematical symbols using MathML.

Notice that you don’t need to know any MathML. Only your browser does. You write formulas into the Azimuth Project between dollar signs in iTeX, which is designed to be very similar to ordinary LaTeX.

Some web-browsers, notably Firefox, know how to display MathML automatically, though you may need to install some fonts. For Internet Explorer one needs the MathPlayer plugin; download is quick and easy and free. For more see HowTo.
