(I guess the MathML spec should have included a reference to IDL).  IDL
(Interface Definition Language) is a language created by the Object
Management Group to define formats for data interchange between
applications, originally designed as part of CORBA. Since then it has
become an ISO Standard (#14750) and is used for uses other than CORBA,
for instance the W3C DOM.
