It'd be different if Mozilla weren't at a prototype stage, and IE's  
support was ``working on a technology''. I'm impressed w/ jsmath, and  
I see it as a useful work-around until all the major browsers get  
mathml support (at which time I hope it can be adapted to seamlessly  
convert between (la)tex source to mathml representation).

Anti-aliasing makes hinting much less important, and an anti-aliased  
svg on-screen should look as good as the anti-aliased bitmap now  
being used, but will print _much_ better.
