Now Playing:

Description:

MathML and HTML5 provide a powerful combination for creating accessible math on the Web. Even though HTML5 can have MathML inserted directly in it, not all browsers support displaying MathML yet. That’s where MathJax comes in – to provide a common look to your equations regardless of which browser the user has. Additionally, with MathML, HTML5, and MathJaX, assistive technology users will be able to interact with the math. This tutorial demonstrates how to insert MathML into HTML5 using the MathJax libraries.
