The MathML2 spec has some problems in the new design,

1)
The links to the MathML + XHTML and PDF versions of the spec have gone

2)
appararently random chunks of text (paragraph sized) throughout the
document are inside <a name=">...</a> and are blue and underline as you
mouse over them ie they are styled as links.


3)
code fragments and element names (which are marked as <code>mi</code>
have far too much white space added either side to be readable.

4)
The navigation switches between old and new styles
for example
http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/REC-MathML2-20090303/chapter1.html#intro.notation
is new style but the link at the top of the document to "Overview" goes
to
http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/REC-MathML2-20090303/overview.html
which is old-style.
(http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/REC-MathML2-20090303/Overview.html
being new-style)



5)
Table headings throughout the spec have lost their styling, they did
have a light coloured background
This is pervasive but compare
http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/REC-MathML2-20031021/appendixc.html#cedef.declare
and
http://www.w3.org/TR/MathML2/appendixc.html#cedef.declare

the same section shows that many other minor heading levels have lost
their styling as well as the table headings, the dt headings which were
bold are now styled the same as the surrounding dd which makes it quite
hard to see the separate items.
