Dear Friends,

The Firefox update of mid September (version 1.5.0.7) renders
all content in mlabeledtr blank.

Perhaps there is not very much usage of mlabeledtr.  So far I seem to
be the only complainer.  (I don't know how to measure extant usage:
most search engines will not score a hit for markup).

Equations and equation arrays done in gellmu since September 2004 wind
up in mlabeledtr's.  I will be needing to change that (and soon!),
at least for the near term, regardless of whether the Mozilla issue
is resolved.

For now I would like to see Mozilla's prior behavior (officially Mozilla
does not implement it) restored.  That prior behavior, admits a _usage
profile_ consistent with the MathML 2.0 specification and compatible
with other user agents.

Those interested may consult Mozilla bug 356870:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=356870

I do agree with the Mozilla position that the requirements of the
MathML 2.0 specification make a proper implementation of the MathML
2.0 specification make a proper implementation of mlabeledtr
unnecessarily cumbersome.

                                    -- Bill
