Thanks a lot!

The documentation about this has been added quite recently so you might
be using a version that doesn't tell so. But Support for MathML has been
there for a long time and I've originally only added it to wxMaxima in
order to find out what it is good for:

(%i2)    load("alt-display.mac")$
    set_alt_display(2,mathml_display)$
(%i3)    sin(a/b);
<math xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML"> <mi>mlabel</mi>
     <mfenced separators=""><msub><mi>%o</mi> <mn>3</mn></msub>
     <mo>,</mo><mi>sin</mi> <mfenced separators=""><mfrac><mrow>
     <mi>a</mi> </mrow> <mrow><mi>b</mi> </mrow></mfrac> </mfenced>
 </mfenced> </math>

I was quite surprised that this allows seamless integration into MS Word
- and I have also filed a but against libreOffice as this program's
equation editor has a MathML import, but doesn't automatically activate
it on encountering MathML.

Thanks again,
and
Kind regards,

    Gunter.
