FOR VIEWING MATHEMATICAL PLOTS and EXPRESSIONS WITH AN INTERNET BROWSER PLUGINS ARE REQUIRED FOR DISPLAYING ASCIIsvg plots with SVG or MathML

However, viewing of wiki .svg expressions and figures is possible without the plugins since the .svg is translated into .png by the server. The use of transparent .svg is otherwise very awkward.

Adobe SVG Viewer is needed for ASCIIsvg display of plots
Of the plugins

Alternatively, can your browser display MathML?

METHODS TO WRITE PORTABLE and PRESENTABLE EXPRESSIONS WITHOUT BITMAPS, PROPRIETARY TOOLS or CAPTIVE FORMATS and allow PLOTS and EVALUATION from the SAME SOURCE are POSSIBLE

Great progress has been made to put mathematical expressions in web pages along with the ability to plot and evaluate the expressions. Peter Jipsen has put MathML, ASCIIMathML, and SVG together Without the MathML plugin rendering equations is very awkward; even using with the wiki .png bitmap an awkward sequence of conversions is needed. The illustrations that use the Adobe SVG Viewer can be also rendered with Inkscape into a .png for more portability. Peter-Paul Koch recommends using object detect rather than browser detect to make web pages that are readable my multiple browsers and configurations.

The client does not need plugins to view a .png created with dislin: The above .png was obtained by adusting the pixels with Inkscape. In any case, dislin may be the best way yet to render equations with the least impedimenta. The .svg produced by dislin can be seen at SVG examples.

I am working on examples that combine as many features as I am able to implement at the same time. Also, I wish to acknowlege (1) information for detecting objects and (2) information on the user-agent .
