I'm not sure how many of you have noticed, but if you write an equation in the equation editor, and save, when you scroll over the equation, you get a lightbox. This lightbox has the LATex code for the equation. I know how to change the title in HTML editing, but I've now written over 200 equations in 1 class, and forgot about changing the lightboxes until just now. Is there an easy way, or do I have to go through all 200 equations and change the titles?

Jennifer,

If I am understanding correctly, this has little to do with mathematics and more to do with HTML editing. I'm not completely sure because I'm unfamiliar with the term "lightbox." I think you are talking about the tooltip that pops up when people hover over the equation as shown in this figure.

It is controlled by the contents of the

titleattribute of theimgelement. Here's what the equation above looks like when you edit it. Canvas has inserted the MathML code and some other things. (I also removed the hostname from thesrcattribute and manually broke the lines for spacing purposes).You will need to edit every place that the equations occur by going into the HTML and modifying it directly. You can edit all of the

titleattributes on that page at one time, though.I'm not sure why you need to do this. Perhaps to improve the tip to say "Quadratic Formula" instead of providing the formula? But there isn't going to be any easy way to automate that. Perhaps if you had some other data source set up with names somewhere else you could write a computer program that would download a page, edit it, and write it back (I've done this using the Canvas API), but in most cases, I wouldn't have a clue what the title should be without looking at the equation.
