Jonathan, ActiveMath also has an "svn variant" documented at: http://eds.activemath.org/?q=en/AMinstallation/svn-stable Maybe that gives you easier access. The code in ActiveMath is multipurpose (it aims at doing MathML (!), HTML+CSS, and TeX) and is really oriented towards stylesheet generation. But maybe something is doable. I would have to ask the team there. Please make the intents more precise. paul Le 11 f谷vr. 2011 角 17:41, J.Fine a 谷crit : > I've been running some tests with Vasil's code and found that with input MathML generated by blahTeX is can produce the always illegal construction "{\right)}^{2}". For this reason I looked for and found the customisation that Paul referred to.
