If your document references the MathML DTD then these mean the same
thing, if it doesn't reference the DTD then "& int ;" is an error.

If you look at the actual test files, eg moAlargeop12.mml and the
inlined MathML that is included in the XHTML+MathML page you will see
that the  "& #x0222B;" form is used consistently (except for the tests
of entity names, which do load the DTD and use the names as a test).

However for the <pre> section of the XHTML page that shows the MathML
Markup  the stylesheet used to generate the test suite shows the
entity name form in many cases, as this is more human-readable.

In your Korean translation, if you think that an English-based entity
name isn't really any help compared to the numerical character reference,
you could use the numerical versions consistently.
(You ought to be able to automatically replace every <pre> section
showing a mathml example by the actual mathml code which has the
numerical references using perl or sed of emacs or some such tool.)

If you download the zip file of the MathML draft at


then it includes a glyphs directory with all these characters

(I think we wanted to avoid duplicating this into all the zip files, it
is a rather large collection of png files, and you only need one set of
