      Bert Bos

      Moritz Schubotz

To join the group, please use:

Please note that supporting a group is different from joining
a group. Supporters must also enroll if they wish to participate.

MathML first became a W3C recommendation in 1998. It has wide support in
the publishing industry and with assistive technology. MathML has had
several updates, but is showing its age and needs to be updated. This
group will focus on changes to the MathML 3 recommendation so that it
better aligns with the current web environment, eases the burden on
browser implementations, and increases support for assistive technology.
The group will propose a new revision for MathML, potentially with
profiles for browsers, publishers, and other subgroups such as authors
or online tests. The group will also develop tests so that
authors/publishers can be confident that what they see as an author is
what the user will see as a reader when the same font is used.

Participation is encouraged if you are in involved in publishing,
authoring, or rendering math. The group strongly encourages the
participation of those involved with browser implementations, 
recommendations, and APIs that potentially affect the rendering of math.


Thank you,
