Kostya, As usual, my compliments on your attention to detail. The operator you identified are all used by Wolfram Research in Mathematica. Neil Soiffer and Bruce Smith from Wolfram did most of the work on the operator dictionary, and much of it was done at a fairly early stage in preparing the MathML spec. By contrast, people were working on the character tables up until the last minute, and the majority of that work was done by Patrick Ion of AMS/Math Reviews. Though we tried our very best to coordinate, I think you have found an area where we simply failed: There should be MML aliases and glyphs for the Mathematica operators, and there aren't. However, there is a table of Mathematica operators/character with glyphs which can be used to at least partly sort it all out: http://www.ams.org/html-math/wolframchartables/privatezone.html http://www.ams.org/html-math/wolframchartables/assignedzone.html These two tables give all the WRI characters with glyphs in both the Unicode assigned and private zones, along with some TeX and SGML aliases. There are descriptions, but in most cases, this is enough to know what is intended. --Robert -------------------------------------------------------------------- Robert Miner http://www.geom.umn.edu The Geometry Center phone: (612) 626-8313 W3C Math WG member fax: (612) 625-8083 --------------------------------------------------------------------Received on Wednesday, 5 August 1998 10:44:39 UTC
