We dynamically offer the best web-page your browser can handle, so in the interest of best presentation, you should aim for a browser that can display MathML. In general, Firefox and its derivatives (Netscape, Camino, SeaMonkey, Minimo, Epiphany, ...) provide the best viewing experience and we discuss below only the main families.

Our journal pages are manufactured to the highest web standards available today are also available in a variety os specialty browsers like the microbrowsers Minimo, Opera Mobile and PocketIE; device based browsers like WebTV and Opera for devices; text based browsers like Lynx, specialty browsers like MozBraille and naturally the W3C browser Amaya. Of course your mileage may vary depending on the browser, device and standards supported by both. For more information check the comparison table below.

Anti-aliasing
First, no matter what system you use, have the anti-aliasing turned on and well tuned.

Microsoft provides access to the technology of sub-pixel rendering only if you use an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) such as a laptop, PocketPC or a flat display panel, and calls the technology "ClearType". A tuning tool can either be run online using Internet Explorer (only) here or downloading the PowerToy tuner here. Follow the wizard that will be installed in the Control Panel and choose the best settings for your monitor. Upon changing a monitor the tuning wizard should be re-run.

On Mac OS X the technology is called "Font Smoothing" and accessible via "System Preferences" and then "Appearance", which will give you five choices for CRT's and flat display panels. The threshold for the size of the fonts to apply smoothing should be set to low.

On RedHat Linux, go to the "System" menu then "Preferences" then "Fonts" and choose the best settings for "Font Rendering".


MathML Font Set
Next download and install the MathML font set from here, then test it on this initial page.

On the most popular platforms our recommendations are, in order:

Windows XP
  • Firefox
    The best viewing experience, not only here, but on almost all platforms. With the best rendering engine for MathML, it will provide the best viewable abstracts. You will need to install the MathML fonts, as described above. This set-up should work well with other browsers on the same family like Netscape and SeaMonkey.
  • IE 7.x/6.x
    Internet Explorer does not display MathML natively but it can be brought to full functionality with the help of the plugin MathPlayer.
  • Opera
    Will display HTML only, and no special fonts are needed for this browser.

Mac OS X
  • Firefox
    The best viewing experience, not only here, but on almost all platforms. With the best rendering engine for MathML, it will provide the best viewable abstracts. You will need to install the MathML fonts, as described above. Same set-up should work fine for Netscape, Camino and SeaMonkey.
  • Safari
    Will display HTML only, and no special fonts are needed for this browser.
  • Opera
    Will display HTML only, and no special fonts are needed for this browser.

Linux/Solaris
  • Firefox
    The best viewing experience, not only here, but on almost all platforms. With the best rendering engine for MathML, it will provide the best viewable abstracts. You will need to install the MathML fonts, as described above. Same set-up should work fine for Netscape, Epiphany, and SeaMonkey.
  • Konqueror
