    I'm not sure forgetting to add www-math@w3.org in CC is really 
efficient ;-) Unfortunately I'm not likely to be able to play with 
MathPlayer: I believe it works only with IE (?) and I don't have this 
browser installed on my laptop.

    Yes, I produced this file with Amaya and forgot to do "Tools->Add a 
doctype". I use .xml because I do think it is generic enough and 
consequently I believe most browsers will parse the file as XML (it 
works with Firefox, Opera and people tell me it works with 
IE+MathPlayer). But I didn't suspect the behaviour of MS Office... So, 
next time I'll use .xhtml. Thanks for the hint.
