ASCIIMathML Editor 1.4.7 (This page requires Internet Explorer 6+MathPlayer or Mozilla/Firefox/Netscape 7+.)

Type (or paste) your text into the textarea. The display on the right updates after 20 keystrokes or whenever you click the update button. Enclose all formulas with left-quotes or \$-signs (or double-blanks if checkbox below is selected). If you know (La)TeX formula syntax, you can use that as well (most basic formulas work). To save your work, click the "View MathML" button and copy the output to a text editor (e.g. Notepad).
Select the layout that best fits your screensize:

You are welcome to save this page locally on your computer (then it will also work without an active internet connection) or on a webserver. In either case you should copy the files ASCIIMathML.js, ASCIIMathMLeditor.js and pmathml.xsl as well, and put them in the same folder as the copy of this page.

The main aims of the ASCIIMathML syntax are: -- 1. close to standard mathematical notation -- 2. easy to read -- 3. easy to type

With this editor, anyone can easily produce XHTML+MathML documents that can be viewed on a variety of browsers (even without JavaScript support). The original ASCIIMathML version of the page is included as a comment at the top of the webpage in case the page requires further editing at a later stage. The editor also ensures that users of ASCIIMathML are not locked into the specific ASCII (or LaTeX) syntax, but are free to convert their files to standard Presentation MathML when this is convenient.
