           Summary: MathML version used in HTML5
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec bugs

Section 4.8.15 MathML [1] defines the use of MathML in HTML5.  Although this
section does not directly use the [MathML] normative reference at least one
other section does.

The Normative References for HTML5 include a [MathML] reference to MathML 2.0
[2]. Although the [MathML] hyperlink is to the generic MathML location [2] I am
assuming it references MathML 2.0 since the reference also includes the date
"Oct 2003".

The W3C is currently working on Version 3.0 of MathML and this specification is
currently at Last Call [3].

Q1: Should HTML5 reference MathML Version 3.0 since it will likely to be a
Recommendation before HTML5 becomes a Recommendation?

I believe this question can be resolved as part of the HTML5 Last Call period.

Note: If the HTML5 spec wants to reference the most recent edition of MathML
2.0 then I would recommend that the hyperlink be changed to:
http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/
