Yes, it looks like AAP Math to me. AAP is the Association of American Publishers (or American Association of Publishers -- I can never remember which). They created DTDs for articles, books, tables and mathematics about 10 years ago. Their work was quite important in the early days of SGML, especially but not exclusively within the publishing world. I actually wrote conversions from and to that format in the early nineties. Regards, Nico Poppelier W3C Math Working Group, editorReceived on Monday, 5 July 1999 15:01:15 UTC
