MathPage Settings

Several values that control MathPage may be overridden. On the Mac, these values can be stored in the file MathPageUserSettings.ini, located in the MathPage folder inside the MathType folder. On Windows, store the values in the registry under the following keys:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wiris\DSMT6\MathPage

If a value is not defined, MathPage uses the default value shown below.

  • RemoveIEComments - removes all Windows IE5+-only comments from the document
    default: "0"
    Comments that are removed are understood by IE5 and later only, and take two forms:
    "Downlevel-hidden" - understood by IE5 and later only and are embedded in HTML comments, and therefore are ignored by browsers other than Windows IE5 and later. Example: "<!--[if vml]>...<[endif]-->
    "Downlevel-revealed" - embedded as regular tags, which themselves are ignored as unknown tags by non-Windows/IE5+ browsers, but the content is always rendered. Example: "<![if !ie5]>this is not an IE5 browser<![endif]>
