Several interesting issues came up when the structure guidelines I
mentioned in previous email were being developed. One of those was how to
represent in MathML "blanks" that should be filled in by a student.  The
main issue for the DAISY guidelines was how to let assistive technology
know that something was a blank so it could be spoken appropriately, but
any solution should also work for online assessment (etc) in general, not
just for those using assistive technology.  To address "fill in the
blanks", the MathML Working Group has come up with a draft note:
http://www.w3.org/Math/Documents/Notes/blanks/fill_in_the_blank.html

There are several open questions (see the end of that document), and we
would appreciate feedback on both those questions and on the proposal in
general.  Please send comments and questions to this email list.

Let the discussion begin,
