Hi. I see the problem. The sin and cos functions in the MathML schema are not hooked up to a calculation engine in XSL processors. They could be, of course, but they aren't part of XPath and no XSL processors I know of extend XPath with mathematical functions such as sin and cos. More formally, the XSL spec says that the value of the select attribute on a <xsl:valueof> element must be an XPath Expr, and XPath only has a very limited list of functions that can be applied to numbers, e.g. round, mod, basic arithmetic, etc. Depending on the accuracy you need, you could approximate sin and cos with a few terms of their power series. The basic arithmetic in XPath is sufficient to calculate those approximations. --Robert Robert Miner Director, New Product Development w3C Math WG co-chair Design Science, Inc. 140 Pine Avenue, 4th Floor Long Beach, California 90802 USA Tel: (651) 223-2883 Fax: (651) 292-0014 robertm@dessci.com www.dessci.com ~ Makers of MathType, MathFlow, MathPlayer, WebEQ, Equation Editor, TexAide ~ > -----Original Message----- > From: Shweta S R [mailto:shweta.sr@sonata-software.com] > Sent: Tuesday, May 15, 2007 1:26 AM > To: Robert Miner > Subject: RE: Trignametric functions in xsl > > Hi Robert > > I am working for a project called OpenXML PPT translator for Microsoft. > > Project details: We are developing a Addin for Office application which > will convert ODF schema of Presentation document to OpenXML schema of > Presentation ML.
