### 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 $n$Lab 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.
