OMDoc is a content-based markup format for manipulating, archiving, and
communicating mathematical knowledge on the Internet. It is used as the 
basis for mathematical knowledge bases, computer-supported learning 
systems, and electronic publishing of mathematical text.

OMDoc is an extension of the OpenMath standard [1] to the document level,
it supplies structured content-markup for mathematical statements (axioms, 
theorems, proofs, definitions, texts (mixing formal content with 
mathematical text). Furthermore it supplies syntax for a notion of a 
structured theory hierarchy known from algebraic specification formalisms 
like CASL [2]. 

Since OMDoc builds on OpenMath and XML, OMDoc can be directly converted
into MathML [3], which can be rendered in Mozilla and IE (via plug-ins).

OMDoc 1.1 is a maintenance release that stabilizes the experiences with 
OMDoc 1.0.  The changes are mainly non-disruptive in often-used parts 
of OMDoc, e.g. adding  optional attributes and children. The main new 
features are the addition of a new referencing and presentation system 
for OMDoc elements and a completely re-written specification document.
