I'm working with education publishers on developing XML representations of things like textbooks and test prep manuals. These publishers are using primarily InDesign with InMath to author their equations. I can capture the raw InDesign data and InMath is working on an XML representation that captures the structure of the equations in a form that is almost MathML presentation. But, one sticking point is the representation of equations with canceled terms, such as fractions where common terms are shown canceled with a diagonal strike out. My understanding from reading the MathML 2 spec is that this can be represented using the menclose element with a notation of "updiagonalstrike" or "downdiagonalstrike". However, it's not rendered in Firefox and I can't MathType or Amaya to create anything other than a long division type enclosure. My questions are: 1. is my understanding of menclose and *diagonalstrike correct in that this is the intended way to represent strikeouts in MathML? 2. Is there any MathML renderer that will render diagonal strikeouts today?
