MathPlayer is a powerful yet easy to use application that enables Microsoft Internet Explorer to display mathematical notation in web pages. This incredible program allows you to cut-and-paste math into any one of a growing number of MathML-compatible software packages, such as Maple and Mathematica. A growing number of software packages including browsers, editors, computer algebra programs and publishing software use MathML to communicate, so this program is really necessary. Unlike other ways of putting math in a web page, such as images and PDFs, MathML provides ways to directly encode various interactivity properties of an equation, which makes it an ideal choice for dynamic math on the web. Almost all of MathPlayer's special features are accessed by placing the mouse pointer over an equation and clicking the right mouse button. Most of the commands operate on the clicked-on equation. In addition, there are commands to find out MathPlayer's version and to visit the MathPlayer web site. All in all, if you are looking for a great application that lets you display mathematical notation in web pages, MathPlayer is perfect for you.
