This is based on the filename however. It could be useful for someone, just not the OP, who wanted it done by file contents.

A subset of this list is also convenient for mapping WebImage.ImageFormat back to a mime type. Thanks!

Depending on your goal, you might want to return "application/octet-stream" instead of "unknown/unknown".

Since my edit was rejected I will post here: the extension must be in all lower case, or it won't be found in the dictionary.

@JalalAldeenSaa'd - an even better fix IMHO would be to use StringComparer.OrdinalIgnoreCase to the dictionary constructor. Ordinal comparison is faster than invariant, and you will get rid of .ToLower() and its variations.

This is based on the filename however. It could be useful for someone, just not the OP, who wanted it done by file contents.

A subset of this list is also convenient for mapping WebImage.ImageFormat back to a mime type. Thanks!

Depending on your goal, you might want to return "application/octet-stream" instead of "unknown/unknown".

Since my edit was rejected I will post here: the extension must be in all lower case, or it won't be found in the dictionary.

@JalalAldeenSaa'd - an even better fix IMHO would be to use StringComparer.OrdinalIgnoreCase to the dictionary constructor. Ordinal comparison is faster than invariant, and you will get rid of .ToLower() and its variations.

This is based on the filename however. It could be useful for someone, just not the OP, who wanted it done by file contents.

A subset of this list is also convenient for mapping WebImage.ImageFormat back to a mime type. Thanks!

Depending on your goal, you might want to return "application/octet-stream" instead of "unknown/unknown".

Since my edit was rejected I will post here: the extension must be in all lower case, or it won't be found in the dictionary.

@JalalAldeenSaa'd - an even better fix IMHO would be to use StringComparer.OrdinalIgnoreCase to the dictionary constructor. Ordinal comparison is faster than invariant, and you will get rid of .ToLower() and its variations.

Is there an online list somewhere? The above list looked a little more complete, and found some of the missing ones, here: stackoverflow.com/questions/4212861/ -- but it seems there should be a web service somewhere that you can just send a filename and some bytes too that can make a best guess and figure the rest out...

I'd use configuration for this, so I can choose the mime-types I need and modify them accordingly, without changing a single line of code

ObjectObject is not necessarily browser related. Javascript in a Node.js environment, for example also has Object. It is similar to Object in Java. It represents the most generic, basic form of object and forms the basis of Object Oriented Programming in Javascript. All objects in Javascript inherit from Object.Roles & Responsibilities: It is there to act as the base class of all classes and provide simple methods like toString() and is() (similar to Java's isEqual).

Node and Element

Node and Element represent nodes are related to DOM trees and are inspired by XML's definition of Node and Element. A DOM tree is a tree representation of XML. A node represents anything in the tree (a comment, a ctag, a tag, an attribute). An element is specifically, nodes that are tags (<div>, <h1>, <span>, <g>, <clipPath>, <circle>, ...). By this definition, every element is a node (Element inherits from Node).Roles & Responsibilities: Node is there to provide a useful abstraction for manipulating a DOM tree. Methods like traversing the tree, adding nodes, removing nodes, finding childing. Element has the same role but is there when we specifically deals with tags. It has extra methods specific to tags like Element.tagName().

HTMLElement, SVGElement, ... The two most common types of XML the browser deals with is HTML and SVG. But there are more. For example MathML is XML for writing maths equations in the browser. HTMLElement is a subclass of Element for HTML tags (<div>, <h1>, <span>, ...). SVGElement is a subclass of Element used for SVG tags (<g>, <clipPath>, <circle>, ...).Roles & Responsibilities: HTMLElement and SVGElement are mainly needed to keep the inheritance tree organised. Programmers can use instanceof on a Element to see whether they are dealing with HTML or SVG or some other kind of XML the browser supports. HTMLElement has some methods for accessibility like SVGElement has some methods related to the SVG viewport.

HTMLSpanElement, HTMLDivElement, ... Every HTML tag, <Foo>, has a corresponding Javascript class <HTMLFooElement>. These are all subclasses of HTMLElement. Similarly every SVG element, <Bar> has a corresponding class <SVGBarElement>. So for <span>, <div>, etc. ... we have HTMLSpanElement and HTMLDivElement. Likewise for SVG's <g> and <circle> elements, we have SVGGElement and SVGCircleElement.Roles & Responsibilities: Again these classes are used to keep the inheritance tree organised. It is convenient to give a OOP type for each particular element and have element-specific methods and properties. SVG circle has properties for x position, y position and radius, for example.

EventTarget This is more of an interface than a class. It is similar to the observer pattern. Any class that implements this EventTarget is able to register several subscribers via addEventListener and then later, send an event to the subscribers.Roles & Responsibilities: It is useful for listening to events such as clicks, keyboard presses, etc. For example, if you click on a <div>, the browser will call dispatchEvent on the HTMLDivELement and anyone will have subscribed will have their callback function invoked.

I would like to say I am extremely impressed with the features the JScience author has chosen and proven able to support with his powerful Java library.

It is a pretty amazing piece of craftsmanship. If you are doing any significant amount of sophisticated mathematics in your Java programs, or just want to create a utility to punt around with then you should take a look at this library. It might even give you some ideas for things you never thought about doing before because they were "too hard".

There is an open source project named MathEclipse that might interest you too.

The most direct route would be to add 'onClick' properties directly into the MathML you use, and use element ids & Java/JavaScript method binding from there. However as far as I know, the 'onClick' attribute is not (yet?) supported in MathML.

What I have done as a hack-around is to add links to each of your clickable MathML elements, and then overload the shouldOverrideUrlLoading() method of the WebViewClient for your WebView, to catch the links that are called. Then if you add unique ID-values somewhere in your links, you can identify which element was clicked.

<math xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML" display="block">
        <msqrt href=id1>
          <msup><mi>b</mi><mn>2</mn></msup>
          <mo></mo>
          <mstyle href=id2><mn>4</mn><mi>a</mi><mi>c</mi></mstyle>
        </msqrt>
</math>

Note on nesting links. When using the HTML-CSS output for MathJax, only the lowest link is actively clicked. However, when using SVG output, every link is called in order from lowest level to highest level. So for what I propose, you'll have to use HTML-CSS output from MathJax. If I find a way to make SVG work, I'll make an edit.

This is described in a number of StackOverflow questions on this, and you can reference the Android Devs site for specifics (here) so I won't go into too much detail. Basically, shouldOverrideUrlLoading() will have a url String with the link you specified for the MathML elements that were just clicked. Parse that for the ID value and send it to a function that can use it, and you're good to go.

public class MathmlLinksViewClient extends WebViewClient {

    //protected MainActivity activity;
    public MathmlLinksViewClient(MainActivity context) {
        activity = context;
    }

    @Override
    public boolean shouldOverrideUrlLoading(WebView view, String url) {
        // Reroutes id int value to MainActivity method
        activity.onMathmlClick(
                Integer.valueOf(
                            // Method I wrote to parse ID from URL
                            HtmlIdFormat.getIdFromString(url) ) );
        return true;
    }

}

Note that the url that is passed to this function is not exactly the link that you include in your MathML elements. each of these is prepended by the host link specified when using WebView.loadDataWithBaseUrl() method for your WebView. (I'm assuming you are following this guide to render MathML.)

If your view operates any other HTML links, you'll want to add an if statement to separate the actions on MathML-element links, and website links. Again, you can research how to effectively use shouldOverrideUrlLoading().

The one downside is that it will add the blue link color to all linked objects. You should be able to override this in MathML by setting the color of all elements to black with an mstyle declaration, but I'm currently having issues doing so.

I didn't cover quite everything, but I hope this helps!

mtable is not specifically for matrices (in particular it does not add parenthesis around the data) It is used for all vertical alignment layouts such as tables and aligned equations.

thanks, I would be delighted if you could give me an example sort of thing or at least the links to the page, where is such an example is made :)

@pinkpanther not sure what example you want, you just surround each number with <mtd><mn> surround each row with <mtr> and surround the whole table with <mtable>

I mean the example which shows how to write script which seem like a table, with cols and rows in between borders.... is it possible? does it give flexibility as such?
