been trying out different browsers on my Win98 laptop at school and
I've found some that Mozilla and Phoenix both have some problems with
WeBWorK. For Mozilla 1.2.1 (not the most current, I think), I the
square WeBWorK gif (which links to the Rochester docs) does not
display. Also the help gif does not display. I find this odd since the
other buttons display fine. This problem does not occur with Phoenix
0.5, so it may be that the problem is with the browser, and not
WeBWorK. If anyone has an updated version of Mozilla and can verify
that this problem still exists or was fixed, it would be appreciated.
The second problem is more serious, I think. Math mode does not display
properly in either Mozilla or Phoenix when using formatted-text mode.
For both in-line and display mode, things like sums and even
inequalities do not display properly when using tth. After looking at
Rochester's democourses, it appears that the png method works fine,
since it makes images. I guess that will serve as proof that I should
update my server as soon as time allows, and should convince anyone
else who is dragging their feet to do the same.
