Upgrade to MathType 5 for Mac OS 9 and OS X

  (Runs with Mac OS X Tiger!)

Design Science MathType™ 5 for Mac is the most important release since MathType 1.0. It has a wealth of new features and enhancements, and we've added an enormous amount of functionality that effectively transforms Microsoft Word into a state-of-the-art math word processor and web page editor. For a complete list off all the new features added to MathType for Macintosh 5 visit our new features page.

One remarkable new feature is our new MathPage™ technology, that will transform your Microsoft Word documents into web pages with great-looking math.

We're excited to introduce a MathType built for Mac OS X, which also runs on OS 9. This new version is also compatible with MathType for Windows, and works with all popular major word processors, presentation, page layout programs and HTML-authoring tools.
