Hi Steve,
Thank you for the directions. I did figure out what was causing the 
error when I published to math page with MathType.
I was hoping that there is a settings file which could be modified in 
MathPlayer to switch the rendering because my wife told me a couple of 
days ago that my laptop screen is not working.

While the cursor is on the expression, you will need to do a right-click, which brings up the MathJax context menu. From that menu, you will need to select "Math Settings > Math Renderer > MathML." Once you have done this one time, it will be remembered until someone changes it again.
