Hi,

In the example operator dictionary in the MathML specification there is an 
entry for the VerticalLine entity as well as an entry for |, however these 
are both the same character.

One definition sets the surrounding space to thickmathspace while the
other sets the space to 0. However, as both definitions are for the infix
form of the operator, they conflict and it is not clear which one should
be used.

Is one of these suggested operator definitions in fact redundant? Or is
there some criteria for choosing which one to use for a given operator?

Thank you,

Michael
