I think you confuse two issues. Given that MathML explicitly specifies that the parentheses must stretch to cover the fraction in this case, Mozilla merely contains a bug -- it is not a question of choice. What you really meant to say is that you think MathML has made a bad design choice. There are, of course, arguments on both sides. Luca has given one argument supporting the choice in MathML. You argue for a different design. But, for implementors of MathML renders, the point is moot. --Robert ------------------------------------------------------------------ Dr. Robert Miner RobertM@dessci.com MathML 2.0 Specification Co-editor 651-223-2883 Design Science, Inc.
