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.
