The second new technology used here is MathJax, a Javascript based display engine for mathematical equations programmed in the LaTeX language. MathJax eliminates the need to display equations as GIF or PNG graphics files (or even SVG for that matter). MathJax requires only the following line of code in the <HEAD> segment of a webpage.

```
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mathjax/2.7.5/latest.js?config=TeX-MML-AM_CHTML"></script>
```

It is then possible to program any math expression in the HTML source using the LaTeX language. For example, typing

`\(\sigma_{ij}\)`

produces \( \sigma_{ij} \).
I'm often asked what software I used to develop the webpages. The answer is... the Vim editor (www.vim.org). Vim is the Windows-based version of the venerable Vi editor on Unix, and now Linux systems. I typed everything by hand.
