The WG members are mostly volunteering their time, and work on the 2nd edition takes up most of it. David Carlisle, in particular, is a key figure in the production of the 2nd edition, as well as the de facto maintainer of the "Putting mathematics on the Web" page. I am sure that eventually someone in the group will find time to implement your suggestions. However, if you or any others on the list have written a good step-by-step guide you would be willing to constribute, that would be a huge help. As you say, many people are having problems, and anything that would help make higher-quality end users docs available faster would be much appreciated. --Robert ------------------------------------------------------------------ Dr. Robert Miner RobertM@dessci.com MathML 2.0 Specification Co-editor 651-223-2883 Design Science, Inc.
