MathML Book proposal needs help

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

I'm working on a book proposal to bring MathML to high-school students and teachers, to website/webhost administrators and to mathematics textbook authors.  I've already written one book on JavaScript, so I have a fairly good idea how difficult a task it is.  I'm still enthusiastic about the concept.

Unfortunately, I am not a mathematics instructor.  At best I am a hobbyist, having graduated high school with one year of calculus.

I'm looking for help, preferably a coauthor who has more solid credentials and experience in professional mathematics, in putting together a proposal for various publishing brands.  I expect such brands to include Addison-Wesley and/or O'Reilly.  I consider myself an expert in web design, and regularly keep updated on the latest from w3.org and mozilla.org, so I don't necessarily need help with the web-based aspects.  

Ideally, such a book would help students and teachers in mathematics and science join their peers in language arts and history in the computer age:  delivering reports and homework as a computer file instead of paper and pencil.  I'd appreciate any help readers of this list could offer.

Very Respectfully Yours,
