As a part of the European Union funded research project called MOWGLI, the Albert Einstein Institute (AEI) in Germany has developed a new and very effective package to enable authors to write mathematics for the Web. Called HERMES, this package will not only generate MathML from TeX, but it will allow authors to insert meta-data into the XML environment of the mathematical expressions, which will allow intelligent searches to be performed on documents. The package is being tested by a major mathematics journal, and it will be used by the AEI's own web journal Living Reviews in Relativity to produce fully indexed mathematical documents.
