Hi Alice,

Great... we are building a great team for a great project!!

I read your post at Google Groups. You're absolutely right. We need to build the basement for further math projects. That's the point, and the main reason for first developing this project.

I've been testing the "Download as PDF" feature for the Math Glossary pages(the link is at the left-down corner of the WE side bar). This feature generates PDF files for one or more pages you decide. See also box "My collection" right under the search box. This is a powerfull tool for converting content to a portable file. I've been experiencing some issues regarding to the field "Supplementary definitions" which is actually a template. I decided to remove this field until the PDF Generator can deal with it. The tech team has told me it's going to take a few months. So for this moment, we only have three fields: Definiton, Examples and Web Resources.

Any comment you put in the Talk Page section of Math Glossary in order to improve the project will be highly appreciated. :-)

Take a look at the sister project: Math Tables and Formulas. We have a section for Statistics.

Wellcome aboard.

I tried the pdf function. Really nice looking result. I tried it on the standard deviation entry and realized, sadly, that the table doesn't show. I like the table as a way to list the data in an example. Maybe there's a workaround. Thoughts?

It might be a good idea to make a list here on the main talk page of the outstanding issues with the pdf function related to the mathgloss. We could note the workaround and then as they are fixed you can cross them off (I've enjoyed seeing these in other places -- real sense of accomplishment).

I briefly checked out the tables and formulas a bit ago. I'll study it some more and leave some thoughts over there.

I'm really enjoying this collaboration.

PDF Generator, its not working 100%, fails to convert some images to same size in the PDF files. This issues will be solved by the Tech Team. We perhaps have to wait a few months, WE will move to a more powerfull server, and meantime they will work on fixing up some apps issues (e.g. PDF Generator).

ToDo/Issues List is a good idea. Feel free to start it

You got to it before I did! I added the bit about not printing tables.
