    The recent discussions  reminded me an issue that (I think) we have 
discussed here before but I thought it would be good to mention now that 
version 3 is being considered.

       I can't find now the relevant discussion but the issue was that 
it would be handy if (presentation) MathML could represent somehow input 
elements in order to have MathML fragments with missing parts that the 
user could fill (for example, inclusion of (x)form elements -at least 
some like input and select- would be ok).
   
    I know for sure that there are several people and project that would 
second this. For now we silently include input elements and we manage to 
get away thanks to Mozilla's tolerance that allows it and render  it 
fine. In other cases, when converting to paper or for IE we have to 
convert the MathML to XHTML first to stop plugins (e.g MathPlayer) from 
trying to parse this invalid MathML.
         
    Thanks,

Manolis
