I have used both methods; both have minor quirks but are pretty usable and give satisfactory results for all of my current needs. I currently prefer the latter, as it requires fewer processing steps than svgmath. Then there is my own baby, http://sourceforge.net/projects/pmml2svg/, which seeks to provide an XSLT-only solution by converting MathML to SVG (for non-Gecko Web browsers, FOP without JEuclid, inkscape etc.). It is currently working as a proof of concept, and I have a student working on it, hoping to make it an attractive alternative by summer 2009. > AFAIK there is no 'recommended' way to get mathml (either kind) > embedded into docbook... yet. Yep. What I do is: - type individual variables and very short equations directly as mathml - type more lengthy math in LaTeX syntax into <textobject role="tex"> directly into the docbook source, followed by a <textobject role="html"> <xi:include href="texmath/whatever.xml"/> </textobject> I have makefile-triggered scripts that create the whatever.xml using a standalone TeX-to-MathML converter. To reduce typing to a minimum, I use emacs-lisp code to create the docbook math environments (<[inline]equation> and subtrees). This setup works very efficiently for me now, but takes some setting up. Justus
