Regarding links from inside math: I think the most interoperable approach is to allow HTML <a> elements inside <mtext>. Beyond that I would like to see the HTML elements <a>, <em>, and <b> (or <strong>) incorporated in the XHTML+MathML document type definition as elements that are allowed in <mtext>. These things have actually been working in Mozilla when the <mtext> element has an xmlns attribute flagging it for the HTML namespace. But this namespace artifice has not been interoperable with MathPlayer. See http://math.albany.edu/math/pers/hammond/G/Math/mtextWithABem.xhtml -- BillReceived on Monday, 9 October 2006 16:43:04 GMT
