Hi. > Is there a way to avoid line-breaking inside an <math> </math> tag ? > Css ? Clearly, it is not welcome that a formula breaks in two lines > when not wanted. (i may use style="display : block", but i don't want > line-breaking before and after the formula as well). As far as I know, there is no reasonable way to do this with MathML markup. It's curious that no one has identified this omission before; clearly it should be addressed at some point. --Robert I agree with Robert that this is a gap at the level of the language specification however there is a current practical workaround for common rendering engines at least. In internet explorer the behavior interface doesn't really let the math expression take part in the linebreaking of the outer paragraph, so the formula will not break anyway. Mozilla does break inline math but only at the outer level of mrow nesting, so if you wrap your formula in an mrow it won't break. (This is actually the same rule as TeX, which does not break any expression inside {...}). The MathML spec suggests that level of mrow nesting can be used as a hint to the renderer on the desirability of line breaking, but stresses that linebreaking is implementation-defined, so both of these behaviours are compatible with the specification.
