dvi2svg: Using the LaTeX layout on the Web
The problem of presenting mathematical formulas on the Web is non-trivial.
Current systems offer only partial answers to such requirements as the
guaranteed layout on the client side or the availability of font-glyphs.
We describe DVI2SVG a system to convert TeX's output into Scalable Vector
Graphics. This approach responds to the requirement above and several
others. We also present how it has been put to use into ActiveMath,
a learning environment on the Web which presents mathematical documents
personalized to each learner.
