Subject: Request for guidance from AGWG re mathematical markup

⛔       This is an external email.


The Silver Task Force of AGWG has mathematical equations destined for WCAG 3.0. The source is currently maintained in latex, but that will not suffice for document publication in html.

APA's help has been requested for determining the best markup approach--perhaps even in time for the FPWD of WCAG 3.0, and certainly by the time that specification becomes a W3C recommendation in a couple years. Please see Jeanne Spellman's attached request.

So, I'm adding this item as a brief agendum at the top of the APA teleconference call for this Wednesday 26 February. I don't expect we'll arrive at the final answer for Silver, but we should be able to better understand the need and identify who we need to pulled into the conversation.

It's also our (APA's) opportunity to ask about the status of enhancements to MathML, and to markup for Chemistry that got such a great start about a year ago. I'm hoping we'll learn that work is proceeding apace, but I'm concerned it may have stalled.

If you're able to join the APA teleconference for this issue at 12:00
(Noon) Boston Time this Wednesday 26 February, you are most welcome. I understand this is very little advance notice. If not, the topic will be back. Updates via email on list (in response to this email) are, of course, also most welcome.

Thanking you in advance,
