W3C Integrates Math on the Web with MathML 3 Standard

21 October 2010 | Archive

W3C announces today an important standard for making mathematics on the Web more accessible and international, especially for early mathematics education. MathML 3 is the third version of a standard supported in a wide variety of applications including Web pages, e-books, equation editors, publishing systems, screen readers (that read aloud the information on a page) and braille displays, ink input devices, e-learning and computational software. MathML 3 is part of W3C's Open Web Platform, which includes HTML5, CSS, and SVG. "We expect wider deployment of MathML 3.0 will facilitate communication of mathematics and science over the Web," said Don McClure, Executive Director, American Mathematical Society.
