Hi Joe,


I can't answer your specific question but, in general, there are so many
choices as to what to put in MathML output it is impossible to make one
translator that will work for everyone. This is one of the reasons why
we made the translators something you can easily customize. If you are
interested in how to do this, see info on our MathType SDK at

I'd wish the MathType translator would not generate stretchy='false' for
the two parentheses in (T) in the sample expression. The presence of the
'false' stretchy attribute has no effect in MathFlow, but it messes up
the horizontal spacing in a second MathML engine we are using.. I had to
manually delete this attribute way too many times than I'm willing to
admit. What is the rationale for including it in the output translation?

<mo stretchy='false'>(</mo>
<mo stretchy='false'>)</mo>
