Dear All. I have a problem using operator dictionary. When I read <mo>(</mo> <mfrac> <mrow> <mi>x</mi> </mrow> <mrow> <mi>y</mi> </mrow> </mfrac> <mo>)</mo> I know that <mo>(</mo> is the opening fence and <mo>)</mo> is the corresponding closing fence. (I get this information from operator dictionary) So I have to render '\frac{x,y}' in parenthesis which are larger then if render 'x'. The same if I read <mo>⟨</mo> <mfrac> <mrow> <mi>x</mi> </mrow> <mrow> <mi>y</mi> </mrow> </mfrac> <mo>⟩</mo> But if I read this (made by WebEq) <mo>⟨</mo> <mfrac> <mrow> <mi>x</mi> </mrow> <mrow> <mi>y</mi> </mrow> </mfrac> <mo>⟩</mo> I will know nothing about stretching of '<' and '>'. Though ⟨ and ⟨ have same unicod numbers only one of them is listed in dictionary. If I want to handle ⟨ as a fence I need to find it's unicod number, then find all other entities with that unicod number and, finaly find those in dictionary. Isn't it very complicated? My idea is to make dictionary in a different way. For strings like 'max' or '++' we may leave it unchanged. For single characters and &Entities; we should supply unicod numbers. Most of them allready have such, but some don't have. (I have posted a list operators not listed in entity listing; many of them are found at http://www.ams.org/html-math/wolframchartables/privatezone.html and at http://www.ams.org/html-math/wolframchartables/assignedzone.html but &RightSkeleton; and many others seem to be completely forgotten) Then rewrite a table in this manner: UNICOD fence stretch lspace ...
