First, the layout of a pedagogical presentation such as, for example, the division algorithm for positive integers, varies somewhat from locale to locale. Second, there is the question of whether one wants "dynamic interpretation", i.e., use of an engine for working out the displayed content -- along the lines of David Carlisle's \longdiv{}{} previously mentioned in this thread. If not, then one would be asking for commands to assist with rendering the computational steps when the author supplies the data. The latter method poses a risk that the entered data may not be entirely consistent. -- Bill
