Maple supports MathML
2.0, an emerging communications standard sponsored by the World
Wide Web Consortium (W3C) for representing and interpreting mathematical
expressions, including their display in Web pages. MathML is an extension of
Maple MathML support allows users to export Maple output expressions and worksheets as MathML-enriched Web pages. Earlier versions of MathML deal only with the display of mathematical expressions. MathML 2.0 represents both their display and their meaning.
Export a worksheet as an HTML document for viewing in a Web browser.
1. Open the worksheet that you want to export.
2. From the File menu, select Export As. The Export As dialog opens.
3. Select HTML as a file type.
4. Specify a path and folder for the file.
5. Enter a filename.
6. Click Export. The HTML Options dialog opens.
7. In the Image Subdirectory field, enter the pathname for the directory where exported images are to be saved.
Images in an HTML document cannot be saved in the HTML file. Each image is saved in its own GIF file. If the directory that you specified does not exist, it is created for you. All image directories are relative to the document. The default directory is images, and it is located under the same directory that was selected for the HTML document. For example, if the HTML document is saved in /u/mydocs, the default image directory will be /u/mydocs/images. An Image Subdirectory of "" causes the images to be saved in the same directory as the HTML file.
8. To export the worksheet as an HTML document with frames, select the Use Frames check box.
9. To export mathematical expressions as MathML instead of GIF images, select the appropriate MathML check box.
10. Click OK.
Your browser determines whether you can properly display the exported worksheet using MathML 2.0 with WebEQ, MathML 2.0, MathML 1.0, or GIFs for the formatted mathematical output.
If WebEQ is not currently installed on your system, the MathML viewer is invoked over the Internet. This can cause slight delays when opening the HTML file. To avoid these delays, you can install the WebEQ MathML Viewer permanently on your machine.
