Since Maple 13, there is a "copy as MathML" option in then context menus couldn't that be supported in a javascript editor?

The MapleAdvisor wiki seems to be completely gone.

I certainly did not mean to be insulting.  I just find the idea of anyone who is savy enough to install Firefox prefering to use IE perplexing. I can't imagine surfing without Adblock for starters. 

As for the whole Vista versus KDE issue, I can't really say - I haven't used KDE in a long time.  I can say that Vista on my 18 month old laptop is a whole lot less snappy than XP on my 6 year old laptop.

There is hope. Even if a flaw in ones character compels one to use IE, everything good in furfox eventually ends up in Microsoft's browser, you just need to wait a version or two. (Well, except maybe Adblock). 

In Linux + Firfox, you can just highlight the image and then cut-and-paste into any plain text input will paste the ALT text. (an html input will get an html reference to the image).  I do this all the time with the command-line maple, or with source-edit mode on Maple Primes.

Looks like it would be hard to patch without redefining the whole numapprox module.  infnorm appears to refer to a lot of locals.

A good question is: is it more work to rewrite people tutorials or to rewrite linalg as a wrapper for LinearAlgebra? (The same question could apply to stats as well).

It looks like Maplesoft had the old grobner's guts replaced with wrappers for Groebner.  I am guessing the same was not done for linalg because 1. matrix vs. Matrix and 2. there are a lot more commands in linalg than in grobner.  But it seems like matrix could be made to create a Matrix, etc. 

You might want to double check the etymology of "vandal".

I read through a lot of the Maple Wiki but it didn't really help with any of my questions.

Perhaps if there were more Maplesoft developers and other Maple Primes members contributing to the Maple Wiki, it would be more useful.

I suspect a lot more people use some sort of equation creator in word or powerpoint to write math:   high school teachers, undergraduate students, engineers doing presentations etc.

LinkedIn seems to be a lot like Facebook, but since it doesn't have Scrabble, I don't see a compelling reason to sign up.

gifs are limited to 256 colors so that could cause an issue and  It is probably a better idea to use the "bmp" plot driver and then convert the resulting image into a png or a tif if you really need a lossless image.

That said, plotting this as a high resolution jpeg seems to work pretty well:
plotsetup(jpeg, plotoutput = "myfile3.jpg", ...

And, actually, looking at the jpg, bmp, and gif output from Maple 12 in Linux, I can't really tell the difference.

I would still like to request for Maple to have png and svg plot drivers, however (the former probably a lot easier to add then the latter).
