I'm working on a mathematical website and I need to create a matrix such as:
I can use images (as above) in some situations, but I'd like to be able to create one with CSS so that I can have my users enter elements "on the fly" via input boxes.
Any thoughts on how I might be able to accomplish this would be appreciated.
Thanks so much,
You can try having brackets  in a specific class with specific height, z-index or positioning, and the numbers in another class, with another z-index or positioning?
Maybe this seems too complex :s
I'd personally have the edges of the brackets become images and along the left hand / right hand side of each matrix I'd hav a border on each side repeating down, that way height wouldn't be an issue.
I'd personally use tables for their ease of use here. Easier maintenance for me.
This seemed to work (though a little differently) in firefox, safari & opera. Not at all in chrome.
If MathJax does what I think it does then it will replace that MathML with HTML/CSS and should make it look consistent.
If you are writing a site specifically for math though, it makes sense to use the tools that were precisely designed for it.
Hope it helps
Thanks for the quick responses! I think that the MathML/MathJax solutions make the most sense for my project.
Enjoy your week...
