[webkit-qt] jsMath behavior different on win vs. linux

Dear List,

I am on a team that's building a math word processor and validator in Qt (http://lurch.sourceforge.net), and we're using a QWebView as the basis for our editor, because jsMath (http://www.math.union.edu/~dpvc/jsMath/) renders math beautifully in web views.

I've noticed recently that a version of our application that works perfectly on Mac OS X and Ubuntu doesn't function on Linux, and a significant part of the problem is that jsMath's JavaScript code is behaving differently in the QWebView on Windows than it does on the other two operating systems.  I expected the QWebView to interpret JavaScript identically on each operating system; are there some important differences I should be aware of that can help me debug this problem?  Thanks!
