Hi Wendell

Here's some more information. Major publishers of scientific journals use typesetting suppliers (which often have their own developed in house typesetting systems, often based on TeX).

River Valley tell us that they do typesetting from XML and MathML.  The last link is to a very informative video describing their dataflow, which I find technically sound.

It seems that VTeX will generate MathML, but don't typeset from it.

This provides background and pointers, but helps only if your looking for an external supplier to typeset thousands of pages for you each year (as to the major publishers of scientific journals).

Best regards


Jonathan
