Hello, SciWriter -> Publicon -------------------------------- I have tested to copy MathML from SciWriter and paste it into Publicon (Context Menu Item: "Paste as MathML"). In general this does work without any problem, except that Publicon seems to supports only a smaller set of mathematical operators than SciWriter. So there are symbols that Publicon will not display. Publicon -> SciWriter -------------------------------- Copy&paste from Publicon to SciWriter does not work for the same reason as in the case of Mathematica (See my previous e-mail), because Publicon encodes the chareacter enties also in decimal notation when one copies MathML to the clipboard (May be it can be changed by configuration, I don't know). In contrast when you save a Publicon document as XHTML+MathML to disk, most MathML entities will be encoded with named entities which will be understood by SciWriter. MathType -> SciWriter ---------------------------------- In previous releases of MathType it worked without any problem to copy&paste from MathType to SciWriter. But in the latest version of MathType (Version 5.2a) it does not seem to be possible anymore to avoid the <annotation> and <semantic> elements that are inserted by MathType. Copied content from MathType looks like this: <math display='block' xmlns='http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML'> <semantics> <mrow> <mi>Y</mi><mo>=</mo><mi>X</mi> </mrow> <annotation encoding='MathType-MTEF'> </annotation> </semantics> </math> .. the problem is that SciWriter does not support the <semantics> and <annotation> element. In a future release of SciWriter it might be solved by simply skiping those elements. SciWriter -> MathType ---------------------------------- Does not work because MathType can not import MathML.

For example: Publicon will read MathML equations from MathType and Amaya but not SciWriter. SciWriter will read MathML output from Amaya but not Publicon or MathType. Amaya will mostly read MathML from SciWriter but not Publicon or MathType. Has anyone looked into the reason for this? -- _______________________________________________ Surf the Web in a faster, safer and easier way: Download Opera 8 at http://www.opera.com Powered by OutblazeReceived on Friday, 13 May 2005 13:39:32 GMT
