> Do they have a DTD for HTML and MathML merged?

You would have to ask them.  I know their browser components have a
good reputation for sticking closely to W3 recommendations, and I
believe they just implemented the suggestion from chapter 7 of the
MathML spec.  But whether or not they actually use a merged DTD
internally I couldn't say.

No and no.  I understand the mainstream browsers are working on XML
support in a big way as a matter of course, but they are also working
(or at least facilitating) direct MathML implementations.

Three minutes of web browsing would answer your question.  Their
license is online at


It seems to be good enough for a fairly lengthy list of customers,
including Oracle.
