Robert and Stan did catch me sleeping on the question of content vs. presentation. Sorry. I believe that the technique of special-loaded DVI's knows no bounds other than an author's reasonable patience (and the danger of overloading the design of DVI). I have said here before that I believe that LaTeX-like markup, when enhanced by symbol declarations with associated *typing*, can be used to generate any reasonable SGML for math with significant, but not enormous, changes in the habits of those accustomed to LaTeX. This can be implemented either using the method of special-loaded DVI's or else using a LaTeX-like markup interface for an authoring SGML application followed by standard SGML-style processing to generate public XML. But is anyone thinking about a public typing system? And are there extant ways to generate presentation MathML? -- BillReceived on Tuesday, 11 April 2000 13:37:14 UTC
