The following test is just a test to see if your computer has a font with complex symbols. It is NOT a MathML test. If the "Text Version" matches the "Graphic Version", your computer has a font with mathetical symbols installed.
|Text||∀OS (year(OS) ≥ 2001 | ∃Font ∋ (∛, ∬♁∰⦖,≈))|
The following tests whether your broswer supports MathML. See the MathML section for information and links about MathML.
Use the Windows Character Map to insert mathematical symbols.
Use the Macintosh Symbols & Emoji Character Viewer to insert mathematical symbols.
No matter which method you use to create the document, the HTML page must be declared as a Unicode page with the following meta-tag.
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

Math ML is an XML language designed to present complex equations. MathML and HTML 5 combinations are supported, but only in the most recent browsers.
See the following links for information on how MathML can be implemented.
You can use the
<sup></sup> tag to create super script text and
<sub></sub> to create sub-script text. See examples below:
