Using MathPlayer 2.0b with Microsoft Internet Explorer 7
While the current version (2.0b) of MathPlayer works with Microsoft Internet Explorer
7 there are some minor issues. We've detailed these issues for you below.
Right-click context menu
When viewing math on web pages that invoke MathPlayer, right-clicking on a math
object should produce a contextual menu. While viewing math content using
Internet Explorer 7 and MathPlayer 2.0b, the contextual menu does not display.
resize on pages containing math not functioning as expected
When viewing pages with Math objects, using Internet Explorer 7's Page>Text Size
menu option has no effect on math objects or on surrounding text. This will
function normally after MathZoom has been invoked by clicking to zoom and
un-zoom any equation object.
size change not immediately reflected in zoomed area
If MathZoom is invoked and then a change made to font size, the change is not
reflected in MathZoom. If you unzoom and then "rezoom" it will be bigger or
smaller (depending on the change you made).
when changing page zoom
When viewing pages containing math, using Internet Explorer 7's Zoom to increase
or decrease the display to anything other than 100% causes the equation object(s)
print output when equation object is zoomed
Zoomed math objects will be distorted in output to printer or to PDF file.
Status line comment <maction>, comment does not display in status bar
The <maction> element in MathML provides a way of adding interactivity to an
expression. In this case, when the viewer hovers the mouse over an expression,
the <maction> element can be coded to display a status line comment. However in
Internet Explorer 7 this status line comment does not display.
Drop does not function under Windows Vista
Click-and-drag of equation objects from browser window to MathType does not
function under Windows Vista. Mouse cursor turns to a non-operating symbol when
hovering over the MathType workspace when attempting to drop equation.
