You probably should include all sites that use MathJax on the MathML list.
See mathjax.org for a starting point--that list is growing really fast.
With MathPlayer 3, anything written for MathJax, whether it is TeX or MathML
will work with MathPlayer in IE, and hopefully by the end of the year, in
Firefox also (that's more iffy).
