Hi Paul, >- the presentation can be pasted in MathType probably, anywhere else ? >- there's no way to select a "sub-formula" and paste it somewhere else thus far You can copy and paste formulas and "sub-formulas"(MathML fragments) as MathML 2.0 Presentation Markup from/to -"SciWriter" (scientific editor based on XHTML 1.1+MathML 2.0 subset) and -"MathML .NET Control" (MathML based equation editor control) Bernhard mailto:Bernhard.Keil@soft4science.com http://www.soft4science.com -----Original Message----- From: www-math-request@w3.org [mailto:www-math-request@w3.org] On Behalf Of Paul Libbrecht Sent: Friday, February 20, 2004 4:07 PM To: www-math@w3.org Subject: Survey of copy & paste of formulae ? Dear Math-on-the-webbers, Is there anyone who has some documentation/survey/experiment-results on copy & paste of mathematical formulae, especially on the web. I know there has been partial things in many directions and that the right button might bring me some things if a browser presents me the content correctly but it would be good if I could find or collect more information. Thus far I know as little as: - MathML presenters (Mozilla, MathPlayer, WebEQ) allow you to copy the MathML presentation, and content if it's there, MathPlayer and WebEQ may have a way to "make" the content - Maple and Mathematica bring copy of MathML content and presentation - the presentation can be pasted in MathType probably, anywhere else ? (well, and in Mozilla Composer) - if has content it can be eaten by Maple and Mathematica with good hopes, anyone else ? (I think it will come in MuPad) There may however be differences in the interpretations of symbols - web-applications can try to do it but it is, in any cases, separated from the system-clipboard (security obliges) So that I have the impression the following limitations exist: - there's no way to select a "sub-formula" and paste it somewhere else thus far - the content-level encoding seems to be a requirement everywhere - meeting an unknown symbol will generally prevent any pasting... Can someone please comment ? thanks paul
