For Immediate Release
MathType 3.6 for Macintosh now Shipping
Long Beach, CA January 4, 1999 Design Science, Inc., today
releases MathType 3.6 for Macintosh, an upgrade specifically developed to work with
Microsoft Word 98. MathType is the full-featured version of the Equation Editor (also
developed by Design Science) included in Microsoft Word. It allows Word 98 users to
quickly insert scientific equation numbers, renumber equations on the fly, change equation
font sizes and styles to match a documents text, plus many other timesaving and
formatting features superior to Equation Editor.
MathType is the leading software for creating textbook-quality equations in word
processing documents, books, and presentations. It is also the de facto standard for
creating equations on the Web. MathTypes anti-aliasing algorithm creates
smooth-lined GIF equations instead of the jagged-edged ones typically created in html.
"Wherever you see high-quality mathematics on the Web, you are seeing equations most
likely created with MathType. Nothing else does such a professional job," says Paul
Topping, the companys president and chief scientist. "We are also geared-up and
looking forward to Netscape and Microsoft supporting MathML in their browsers (Supported
by the next version of MathType, MathML is a subset of XML, and is used for representing
mathematical notation on the Web)."
MathType 3.6 for Macintosh requires System 7.1 or newer. MathType is $129 and $99 for
faculty, staff and students of academic institutions. MathType 3.5 users can purchase an
upgrade for $19.95; users of older versions of MathType for Macintosh can purchase the
upgrade for $29.95. Multi-user licenses, school and district licenses are
available.MathType can also be purchased and downloaded from the companys Web site:
