Créer un questionnaire en ligne

Julien a eu récemment la bonne idée de poster sur son blog un lien vers un message de Mikaël qui indiquait lui-même une page du XPhi Blog expliquant comment créer facilement un questionnaire en ligne.
Un exemple très rudimentaire ici :

Semantics and Philosophy in Europe

SPE colloquium will take place in Paris, May 2-4, 2008.
Arché (St Andrews), the IHPST/Chaire d'Excellence 'Ontological Structure and Semantic Structure' (Paris), Logos (Barcelona), and CSMN (Oslo) are organizing new annual colloquium 'Semantics and Philosophy in Europe' (SPE).

The purpose of the colloquium is to enhance the dialogue between linguists and philosophers and to provide a new forum for presenting research in the interface between linguistic semantics and the various related areas of philosophy (philosophy of language, epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of mathematics, and philosophy of mind). The colloquium is to take place every year, alternating between Paris, St Andrews, Barcelona, and Oslo. :
"This website has as its goal to investigate the opinions of the mathematical community on intuitionism. To this end it presents ten slightly provocative questions and collects answers to these questions from as many people as possible."

LateX to HTML

Stefan Ionescu has pointed out to me the following link : A Brief Description of LaTeXMathML (thanks!)
The abstract reads : "This is a short article that illustrates those aspects of LaTeX that are transformed by LaTeXMathML into a mathml plus html format. While limited in scope, LaTeXMathML nonetheless is capable of transforming a large subset of those elements found in a typical LaTeX article into a mathml empowered webpage. The goal of LaTeXMathML is that of making pure latex coding a "web-friendly" enterprise."
