    Characters

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Jezza on 18-May-06 23:39. ..to add PS)</P>Trying to get away from using a graphic here but I was wondering if anyone has got any ideas how I could show this in HTML.

    Had an idea of using CSS for parts of the equation as this may come a feature of a few pages...but any ideas will be of great assistance

    PS I don't want to have 1.61803... or phi, just the equation please <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    You could use Stef's HTML Equation Generator (even Argus should be able to see it on his Windows 3.11 / IE3 machine <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>)

    Re: Characters

    What a great link , thanks....


    Whilst I was off line I had a Jezza <img src=/S/nerd.gif border=0 alt=nerd width=20 height=21> Bear moment and did a simple CSS idea like this

    HTML
    <pre><div class="phi">
    <ul >
    [*]5+1[/list]


    2</p>
    </div>
    </pre>


    CSS

    <pre>.phi li{
    border-bottom-width: 1px;
    border-bottom-style: solid;
    border-bottom-color: #000000;
    list-style-image: url(../graphics/sqr.gif);
    font-size: 120%;
    color: #000000;
    width: 50px;
    }
    .phi p{
    font-size: 120%;
    padding-left: 50px;
    margin-top: 2px;
    line-height: 10px;

    }
    </pre>


    Image for square root below

    PS I will need to check that the link content validates against W3C but it is a good start..thanks

    Re: Characters

    ..so we start to get to the bottom of it we can use this character √ which is & #8730; when coded in HTML.

    With a little mucking around I reckon I could get:

    √ 5 +1 and then some CSS styling to get it to look nice <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15> yes that has got me thinking

    Try this, it appears to go funny when you edited the post after:

    √ 5 +1

    I am replying to you as this thread seems to be just me talking to myself.

    I have had this link Amaya sent to me from a fellow tutor at College who says it is the bees knees using the basics of MathML but writes the code for you. You can see my equation for &Phi; being created
