NOTE: some of these pages include mathematical formulas which have been rendered via small image files. This is because all current browsers do not support MathML. Even those based on Mozilla, which adheres to current standards better than Internet Explorer, cannot support XHTML + MathML in the same document. An alternative would be to use XML exclusively, but the JavaScripts used in these pages would have to be rewritten. When these compatibility issues are resolved, these pages will be upgraded.
