The World Wide Web is an invaluable tool for communicating scholarly information, but there remain difficulties and issues when trying to use the Web to communicate certain kinds of information, notably scholarly journal articles containing complex mathematics. This paper looks at some of these concerns and the approaches being used today to address them. Illustrations are drawn from the Illinois Digital Library Journal Article Testbed that currently contains over 65,000 online journal articles in the disciplines of physics and engineering. The latest developments in the use of MathML on the Web are discussed.
