MathML objects certainly are going to be much smaller than the corresponding gifs. I expect that the same is true for any bitmap format. I hesitate to say "any XML" because I can imagine a possibly perverse, though possibly useful XML to describe a bitmap format. (It would be useful if XML processing could be useful with it.) But bitmap formats are not scalable. That makes them long term undesirable. We'll have to see what we get with the new scalable vector graphics format that has recently been announced for consideration by W3C. (Hmmm... what's the size of objects in other scalable graphic formats?) -- BillReceived on Thursday, 12 November 1998 21:52:28 UTC
