Subject: Re: [dita] MathML entities issue in DITA 1.3

Hello Tarun,

Yes, it does seem to be intentional, and I really have no idea how MathML will work in DITA in other editors. In general, I don't think anyone would be so foolish to try and write MathML as XML, so they would always require some plug-in that allows them to draw the equations up in some graphic manner, like MathFlow. And possibly, when using that plug-in in such environments, the entities will have to be included. As I mentioned, I will see if I can get some answers from the DITA gurus in my circle of friends.

I have almost finished the Simplified XML templates, so I will be sending you those files as a separate package (as they are part of the DITA 1.2 directory - so they do not need to be packaged with the final DITA 1.3 stuff. After finishing the templates I will switch back to DITA 1.3 and see if the MathML works on my machine when changing that thing in the DTD.

Kind regards from Amsterdam
