Thanks Sajuks,

I am already aware and using the method of converting or using equations of graphics, but in case of heavy documents or books where the number of equations is very high the total package size goes up.

Which means that the equations will take time to load.

I want a solution wherein I can display the equations as content as opposed to graphics.


Thanks,
Yellamelli

yes it is possible to represent formulas with tables and formatting. however, under proper image settings, GIFs may be actually smaller than HTML markup.
