Hello. Thank you for your explanation. It clears my uncertainty. > Reply to the original mail from: > Robert Miner <RobertM@dessci.com> > Hi. I think your interpretation is correct. In my view, these two constructs should be considered to be equivalent as far as the typesetting of the math is concerned. 1) <math display="block">...</math> 2) <math><mstyle displaystyle="true">...</mstyle></math> Similarly, I think 3) <span style="display:block"><math>...</math></span> should be treated equivalently too. There is some question as to whether all of these should embed the math in the surrounding HTML the same way. I think 1 and 3 should definitely embed the equation as a separate, centered display, while 2 should probably just change the typesetting of the equation and not affect how the equation is embedded. However in all three cases, scriptlevel should be initialized to '0', and displaystyle to 'true'. I'm fairly sure this is what both MathPlayer and Mozilla do. --Robert ------------------------------------------------------------------ Dr. Robert Miner RobertM@dessci.com W3C Math Interest Group Co-Chair 651-223-2883 Design Science, Inc.
