Do you agree with the MathML sceptic who said it's a train to nowhere?
Explain your answer.

So, your claim is that off-line publishing of math (or STM, which is
probably what you mean) is the only successful application domain for
MathML?

That's clearly false, so what is your real reason for saying something
like that here? I have to assume you're not just trying to stir up random
trouble, so I guess I'm at a loss.
