Important note about Browser and Fonts

This site uses MathML (Mathematical Markup Language) to support rendering of various symbols in the mathematical and science subjects. You are requested to use Mozilla Firefox version 3.5 and above as the browser of choice for this site. You can download it from the Mozilla website for free here.

Thereafter, preferably, you should download and install the STIX Beta fonts for best MathML rendering. The STIX Fonts Project has been developing a complete set of fonts to cover all the symbols in MathML. A beta release of the fonts can be downloaded in a zipped file from the Mozilla website here.
