Is it still the ambition of the HTML-Math WG to define such a language for easy math input (and possibly fall-back representation of math for web browsers lacking special math support) as a layer above the basic MathML layer? 2. Extension of Unicode The charter of the HTML-Math WG [2] contains this passage: > It will be desirable to request from Unicode the registration of > a large number of characters used in mathematics but as yet with > no place in Unicode. Has such a request been made? If so, is it publicly available? 3.
