Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Re: Docbook + MathML "state of the art"?
It would be nice to know if PTC's Arbortext implementation actually puts text characters into the output or if it vectorizes the fonts (like SVG Math). Also, I am curious as to how it handles line wrapping for long expressions, especially ones that contain the <mtable> element (mtable is frequently used to align equations in presentation MathML). Finally, I wonder if there are any implementations capable of rendering content MathML (IE, you feed it just the math operations you want to represent, and the engine formats it accordingly). In a way, presentation MathML is to content MathML as HTML is to DocBook. And yes, if you aren't talking PDF, then I know of at least one application that can interpret content MathML correctly...
