I think it should be up to author, if (s|h)e is happy with plain text notations then it is Ok to use them, if however explicit math markup is desired then <formula>2 + 2 = 4</formula> is the way to go. However personally I don't like the idea of mixing different notations in one document. -- _______________________________________________ Surf the Web in a faster, safer and easier way: Download Opera 8 at http://www.opera.com Powered by OutblazeReceived on Thursday, 8 June 2006 07:08:43 UTC
