I am also SGML illiterate, nor am I a computer scientist (anyo= ne = guessed that I'm a mathematician yet?!). For my work I need a good refere= nce = on html math that I *know* will be supported by a reasonably good browser= in = the not-so-distant-future. I can easily spend some time on getting this = developed, and I can definitely donate the disk space/server effort etc. = to = maintain some math/html pages. Personally I'd prefer a newsgroup over a mailing list - is this so hard t= o = achieve? - I don't quite get the point of mailing lists whith this amount= of = traffic. Oblig. Math question: Why the <math> - tag at all? I don't mean abolish it, but in some instanc= es it = can be quite unnecessary and annoying: If <math> a ≤ b </math> then ... should be as valid as = If a ≤ b then ... [ ≤ is the symbol for 'less then or equal to' ie. '<=3D' ] -- = James =D8.
