The problem is the broken URL for mathdom 0.7.1 provided on the mathdom 
PyPI page.  Sourceforge has no such file.  Please let the author know about 
the problem.  In the meantime:


should get you the package that is available.  (It's not using the 2.4 egg 
because again, you're on Python 2.3.)

No; the intent is to allow everyone to learn from the answers, and thus 
better support others.  This wouldn't happen as well with a walled-off tracker.
