Thanks. I hope the book will serve as a useful resource and 
contribute to the growing awareness and adoption of MathML.

The Math Working Group has done an excellent job in developing the 
spec. and making it broadly useful. The level of support in browsers 
and other products is also very encouraging. Now the main hurdle is 
one of getting the information out to people who can benefit from 
MathML. I'll be happy if the book can play even a small role in 
accomplishing that.

Good luck with your own proposal.

Pavi
