Thank you. Is that what you mean : &DifferentialD; and d are just characters with no "content" meaning ?

However, if for instance i want to translate my xhtml+mathml files to tex, then &DifferentialD will be translated to \dd while d will be translated to d.
So i need to encode these two letter differently, no ?

(i could also use roman mstyle for d,e,i instead of DifferentialD, exponentialE, imaginaryI but in fact, these entities are usefull and meaningfull (to the end user i am) ; it's just that their rendering is not very conventionnal...)

Regards,
Stéphan
