LONG BEACH, Calif. -- July 26, 2004 -- Design Science announced today the release of MathType™ 5.1 for Macintosh that works with Microsoft Office 2004. MathType is the full-featured, professional version of the Equation Editor in Microsoft Office, AppleWorks and many other products, and is used by math and science educators, research scientists and publishing professionals to include mathematical notation in printed documents and web pages.

In addition to providing support for Office 2004, MathType 5.1 is built for Mac OS X, runs on OS 9, and is a major upgrade for MathType 3.x users. The new version has all the features of MathType for Windows: hundreds of new mathematical and technical symbols and templates, a toolbar and menu commands that turn Microsoft Word into a powerful math word processor and web page editor, batch EPS export and color support for professional publishing, translators to TeX, LaTeX and MathML, and the company's new MathPage™ technology for converting Word documents to web pages that display and print high-quality mathematical notation. Equation Editor users can now work with Word documents created by MathType users via the freely downloadable MathType Lite.

Anyone can download MathType from the Design Science web site and try it free for 30 days. MathType is $129, the academic price is $99, upgrades from MathType 5.0 for Macintosh to 5.1 are free, and upgrades from other versions are $49.95.
