Hi All, I'm faced with an interesting problem at work: New Zealand's general election is happening towards the end of this year, my department is working to produce a Television/Web/Teletext (Teletext being a mostly European phenomenon ) output system for ongoing election coverage. Our data acquisition occurs in XML, we have a template management system for our web content - so what I plan to do, is create templates in MathML to "wrap" statistical analysis equations around our election data (basically numbers of votes :) and process those equations. The beauty of this, is in the "massaging" of the analysis equations that could follow - given the whole thing can be manipulated just as easily as any other XML node-set. That being said, my problem is the nature of MathML as a presentation language. I initially presumed that someone would have developed software to parse a MathML document and process the equations (silly assumption I know :) I then happened upon JEP (http://jep.sourceforge.net) a brilliant little tool. My concept is thus: An XSLT document is created which simply translates a MathML document back into its pure unrendered equation form, and then feeds that equation into JEP. My questions are: Has anyone already created such an XSLT translation? Does anyone know of a MathML engine which does this type of calculation already? Could this be viewed as going against the concept of MathML? Am I crazy? The last question is obviously not quite as important as the first three :) Regards, Corin Corin Moss Lead Developer TVNZ - Online and Digital ------------------------------- Ph +64 9 9167367 Cp +64 21 403054 Em cmoss@tvnz.co.nz "I worry about my child and the Internet all the time, even though she's too young to have logged on yet.
