The goal of the OpenMath project is to develop a set of standards and
tools for the exchange of semantically rich mathematical information.

The OpenMath standard is a language for communicating mathematical
information, allowing  OpenMath compliant software to exchange
mathematical objects in a meaningful way.  OpenMath compliance 
is being planned or developed for products including: 

     general purpose and specialized computer algebra systems; 
     document preparation systems; 
     web browsers; 
     equation editors; 
     databases containing mathematical information.
