# How to Get the Best Display of Equations When Reading this Site

This site uses MathML for displaying equations. In order to get compatibility with as many browser types as possible, MathJax is used. MathJax relies on JavaScript for equation rendering, and is much slower than using a browser having native MathML support. Even browsers with native MathML support such as Firefox do not use their native MathML capability by default when displaying MathJax content. With Firefox, you can get faster equation display by right-clicking on any equation and choosing Math Setttings, Math Renderer, MathML. A better solution for Firefox is to install the MathJax Native MathML add-on, which forces native MathML rendering for all sites using MathJax. When using this add-on, you should disable two of its options. Both Disable MathJax mml2jax preprocessor and Fix MathJax NativeMML bugs should be *unchecked*. This avoids strange error messages that appear on some web sites. For more information, see this discussion. If you use the Firefox native MathML support, follow the instructions on the Firefox MathML fonts page to get the best display quality. These instructions change from time to time, so it's a good idea to check them periodically to make sure your fonts are up to date.
