Hi, I'm proposing the creation of a W3C Community Group to discuss a math: URI scheme and Web browser protocol handler. The 'math' URI scheme and protocol handler can be used by Web browsers and other applications to transport mathematical expressions to other applications, such as Assistive Technologies or graphing calculators. If you are interested this proposal, please join: http://www.w3.org/community/groups/proposed/#mathprotocol. Below is the provisional URI Scheme Registration Template: URI scheme name math - The math: URI scheme can be used by Web browsers and other applications to transport mathematical expressions to other applications, such as Assistive Technologies or graphing calculators. Status Provisional x URI scheme syntax Applications launched via the math protocol take as a parameter either a URL to a resource containing a mathematical expression in MathML or other formats or the actual math expression in uncompressed or compressed form. For example: math://mathmlcloud.org/m/uniqueexpressionid math:<math><mi>x</mi><mo>+</mo><mn>2</mn></math> math:<math-compressed>someexpressionincompressedformat</math-compressed> URI scheme semantics TBD Encoding considerations TBD Applications/protocols that use this URI scheme name Applications should register the math: protocol handler with this scheme. Interoperability considerations TBD Security considerations None known.
