Maybe I am checking at the wrong MathML document ? I was looking at http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/PER-MathML2-20030804/003.html > It looks like the names didn't move with the images. > (I'm sure we've checked this 1000 times before..) > > So I think you are correct that the entity names should be > swapped round . Actually, I thought the MathML *names* are in agreement with the glyphs in the Unicode charts (well, except maybe using "phi" for 3D5); I was proposing that the *glyphs* be swapped in the MathML specs. To make myself clear: shouldn't the situation be (to match Unicode): 3C6 -- loopy glyph -- names: phiv, varphi 3D5 -- straight glyph -- names: phi, straightphi (where 'straight glyph' is the circle slashed by a vertical line, and 'loopy glyph' is the other one) Right now, in the MathML specs, the names are as above, but the glyphs are not.
