Exporting a worksheet as HTML+MathML

(Excerpt from "The MathML Handbook" by Pavi Sandhu)

You can export a worksheet to HTML and automatically convert all mathematical output into MathML. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open the worksheet that you want to export.
  2. Choose File → Export As → HTML with MathML.
  3. In the Save As dialog that appears, specify a name and location for the file, and then click OK.
  4. The HTML options dialog is displayed. Use the Save Mathematical Expressions As pop-up menu to specify the type of MathML you want to produce.
  5. Click OK.

An HTML version of the worksheet that contains embedded MathML equations is saved in the location you specified. Parts of the worksheet that cannot be saved as HTML (such as graphics) are saved as GIF images. By default, any images produced are saved in an images directory located in the same directory as the HTML document. You can choose the particular type of MathML in which to save formulas using the HTML Options dialog (see the following figure).

Conversion from Maple worksheets to HTML+MathML documents is not reversible! That is, you cannot import an HTML+MathML document produced in this way into Maple and convert it back into a worksheet for doing further calculations. This type of two-way conversion, however, is supported in Mathcad.
