<font size=3D"2">I am trying to use jsMath to represent equations properly =
on web pages.<br>
<br>
In a problem, I use the <algebra>y=3D3333/4444</algebra> syntax=
.<br>
<br>
By default, I see just the usual y=3D3333/4444 in the output.<br>
<br>
However, if I set Preferences for Displaying Math Equations to jsMath, then=
the equation displays correctly:<br>
<br>
y =3D <span style=3D"text-decoration: underline;">3333</span><br>
4444<br>
<br>
My minor problem: it looks crummy, because the font size used is too small.=
<br>
<br>
The jsMath site indicates this is common, and recommends using the followin=
g construct to scale up the font size:<br>
<br>
<script type=3D"loncapa/jsMath"> jsMath =3D {Contr=
ols: {cookie: {scale: 133}}} </script><br>
<br>
The question is: where do I put this? Apparently it needs to go before the =
jsMath.jar command is issued.<br>
<br>
I tried it after the perlscript in the problem file, no results.<br>
I tried it in the style file, no results.<br>
<br>
Any thoughts on how to issue this?<br>
<br>
Thanks<br>
