You won't have to type MathML directly. There will be a number
of ways to avoid this, e.g. by using a filter from other formats
or using a template editor such as in Word and FrameMaker. W3C's
Amaya browser/editor will include such a feature.
I am working on an easier to write format (EzMath) that can be
used to translate into MathML, e.g.
integral from 0 to pi of sin ax wrt x
2nd derivative of f(x) wrt x
