FWIW, same here.  Firefox 3.6.15 on Windows 7.  Given that both pages
specify the MathJax_Math font yet only mathjax.org actually looks like
it uses it, you’re probably right about MathJax having trouble finding
the fonts on yours.

I tried a couple other browsers.  IE8 aborts the script after an error
on “Line 1, char 6” (I think that’s because of the nest of CDATA, HTML
comments and JS comments), while Chrome seems to be using the right
font.  So I guess this is a Firefox thing.  The FAQ mentions Firefox’s
same-origin policy in the context of image fonts being used instead of
web fonts.[1] Seems unlikely to be the culprit in this case though.

Hope this helps narrow it down a little.
