# Silva Math Released

Silva Math uses LaTeX and dvipng to render mathematics. Silva Math benefits from the long tradition of math handling in TeX and LaTeX with its extensive math language and mature rendering capabilities.

An advantage of Silva Math compared to Silva JSMath is mathematical expressions are rendered on the server side as images. Thus, there is no need for JavaScript or mathematical fonts on the client side. This gives the server operator full control over the appearance of the mathematical expressions. On the downside, the printing quality of the expressions is not yet optimal.

Silva Math has been tested with the Silva 1.6 and 2.x series on Linux (Ubuntu 7.10 with TeX Live) and Windows (XP with MikTeX 2.7).
