Somebody is asking me how to get his Safari-browser to display our equations.
I don't know. Does anyone?
My comment will not help. Use Firefox! I use a Mac the whole time and have no problem using Firefox. I cannot find a FAQ ofor Safari with mention of the extra fonts. (But I am not an expert.)
Searching the Internet, it appears that Safari (and Konqueror) do not support MathML at all. If correct, then it's not a matter of fonts.
Internet Explorer doesn't support MathML either (while Firefox and Opera do). But IE has a plugin, MathPlayer, that renders MathML. For Safari, I can't even find anything like that.
I haven't found a clearer reference than this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MathML#Web_browsers.
So yeah, use another browser.
One other point is tell the enquirer:
NAG the designers of Safari. Bombard them with requests!!!!! Get others to do the same!!
It's also worth searching through Jacques Distler's blog for the word "Safari" to learn of the dangers of viewing the nLab through the eyes of a non-compliant browser. In particular, the wikipedia page that Toby mentions implies that Opera is okay. Reading Jacques' blog, you'll find out that it isn't (The information on Jacques' blog may be out of date, as may the Wiki page, since Opera is now on 10.something, so if anyone can find a direct announcement that Opera support MathML properly, please let the rest of us know).
(It's also disappointing that that wikipedia page doesn't mention itex.)
