3: Visit www.w3.org/Math/testsuite . It gives you vast array of MathML examples to work with. The website provides codes of hundreds of examples. At certain stage of this course, you may like to copy and paste the codes to your desktop to confirm results. Besides, it is a repository of about 900 entity references used to display symbols and implement mathematical ideas. On the testsuite web page, click the link named "testsuite.zip" to download the same in the desktop folder created for the course. Store the zip file for use in future.

The official documentation of mathML is available at W3C web site www.w3.org/TR/MathML2 .

Creating a mathml enabled document

Here, we present the steps to generate MathML codes in MS Word desktop editor. The idea right now is not to explain MathML codes, but to show the way to create a proper document with MathML codes and implement the same in the MathML enabled browser on your desktop.

As the codes need to be free from formatting details and other encoding, the file created is saved as plain text with Unicode(UTF-8) specification. As such, the file should be saved as plain text file with extension “xml” in order to view the implementation in the browser.

Once the document has been created, the same can be tested in MathML supported browser like Mozilla’s Firefox. When MathML codes display the output to the satisfaction, then block of codes starting with<m:math>tag and ending with</m:math>tag can be copied and pasted in the XML document for publication purposes or be saved for future use. Now, proceed with the steps given here to create a mathML enabled “xml” document.

1: Open MS Word. Open a new document. Write exactly or copy/paste the following markup lines in the new document :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> <!DOCTYPE math PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD MathML 2.0//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Math/DTD/mathml2/mathml2.dtd" > <document xmlns:m="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML"> </document>

2: Write the next top most “xml” element of the document between “document” tags.

<content> </content>

Note that “document” and “content” are the only XML elements i.e. the pair of tags, used for practicing MathML code. All other code lines, as detailed below, shall be MathML codes.

3: Write “math” MathML element between “content tags” with an example coding to display mathematical construct : v = AB t .

4: For the time being, write exactly or copy / paste the code lines as given below and place them between “content” tags :

Displaying mathematical content

<content> <m:math display="block"> <m:mrow> <m:mi mathvariant="bold">v</m:mi> <m:mo>=</m:mo> <m:mfrac> <m:mi mathvariant="bold">AB</m:mi> <m:mi>t</m:mi> </m:mfrac> </m:mrow> </m:math> </content>

5: Click File from Word’s top menu and select “save as”. A dialog box appears. Look at the "Save as type" option. Select “Plain Text” option from the drop down menu. Give a name to the file such as “test.xml”. Ensure that you have provided “xml” extension. Click “Save” button available at the right hand corner (also visible in the figure below).

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
