"With how hard my head's pounding, I think they opened my skull and crawled out of my nightmares."

April 13, 2004

Busy, busy, busy.

Completed XHTMLizing and MathMLizing everything, in addition to figuring out how to properly serve application/xhtml+xml to every UA that can handle it. Posts and pages containing MathML have proper notices about it, with a link which directs you to the MathML section of the Colophon page where instructions on how to get MathML working reside. And now, for your viewing pleasure, a random mathematical equation:

$$f'(x) = \lim_{{\Delta}x\to0} \frac{f(x + {\Delta}x) - f(x)}{{\Delta}x}$$

Of course, this change means IE fucks something up. I mean, of course! It's beginning to feel more and more like a natural law. Now, the aforementioned annoyance doesn't really matter much, it's just dead ugly. At the very top, it displays the following characters: ]>. I know how to fix it, but I won't. Why? Because that means more code. Those characters are part of an entity I've defined, namely &m;. I can use this entity in the xmlns attribute which has to appear in every single <math> start tag instead of the inferior (and long) URL http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML.
