It's ridiculous. You won't have to type MathML directly. There will be a number of ways to avoid this, e.g. by using a filter from other formats or using a template editor such as in Word and FrameMaker. W3C's Amaya browser/editor will include such a feature. I am working on an easier to write format (EzMath) that can be used to translate into MathML, e.g. (x+2)^2 integral from 0 to pi of sin ax wrt x 2nd derivative of f(x) wrt x Regards, -- Dave Raggett <dsr@w3.org> http://www.w3.org/People/Raggett phone: +44 122 578 2521 (office) +44 385 320 444 (gsm mobile) World Wide Web Consortium (on assignment from HP Labs)Received on Thursday, 24 July 1997 06:15:36 UTC
