There have been only small revisions in this page since 2001, mostly for the purpose of updating.
If you do not know that GELLMU now produces the modern form of HTML with MathML, then you should go to the main entrance.
Release packages have been available since July 2001. HTML, XHTML+MathML, DVI, and PDF versions of both the GELLMU Manual and the Introductory User's Guide to Regular GELLMU are part of the package.
The Examples Archive provides, along with the manual, an important way to learn. Unless other notice is given, copyrights for these examples should be assumed to reside with the original authors, and re-distribution should conform to the terms contained in them.

Feel free to examine items found below. They are all subject to change.
Visitors who have not previously read through the docs from the main GELLMU entrance may find these materials mysterious. Caveat emptor! (At least the price is right.)
Content providers must, however, follow the new directions found at http://www.w3.org/Math/XSL/. Many thanks are due to David Carlisle for his XSLT tricks. Browser vendors who handle XSLT but do not handle MathML may wish either to study Amaya or Mozilla source or to contract for a plugin.
View non bitmap math in an “ordinary” web page if
your browser is ready for MathML.
Note that some browsers also handle this document when served more
specifically as the XML form of HTML or
even as non-specific HTML.
markup, an instance of basic GELLMU, is available for scrutiny
along with a Mozilla 0.9 screenshot and
a re-sized version of that screenshot.
Open source browsers with native MathML capabity
include (1) W3C's Amaya and
(2) Mozilla's MathML
development track. Much more information is available from the
W3C Math Page.
newcommand is called a meta-command because all if its expansions are done by the syntactic translator.
Use of newcommand is made in the GELLMU markup for this document and in many of the other documents within the GELLMU web site.
This document was written in GELLMU source directly for HTML. Most instances of GELLMU source at this site are written for the GELLMU document type rather than for the HTML document type.
For more information on using GELLMU to edit HTML (and other classical languages under SGML) see ghtml.html.
All formatting of the didactic article document type should be done from the XML version.
Some “central” styling is done in this translation. For example, consistent with \secnumdepth and \tocdepth, section numbers are generated, and labels and references are matched. This makes it possible to ensure that such things are consistent across multiple output formats. The behavior in regard to these things is reasonably consistent with LaTeX's behavior.
These are didactic materials. If you are reading this page, you might want to make your own versions in order to meet your needs and to realize your style preferences. These materials may or may not be useful. I hope at least that they are instructive.
