Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Docbook with Math ML/Latex => PDF

In my application, I need to do both PDF and HTML. I would like to do it similar to a mediaobject and use "role" to differentiate the processign path needed.
       <imageobject role="html"> .....</imageobject>
       <textobject role="pdf">  **include the MML file ***  </textobject>
Something like that. But what is the preferred way of including MathML in a mediaobject? Or is there a more sane manner in which to go about this task?

Agreed on markup Ben, I meant to answer the questions this thread has
raised? I.e. taking mathml embedded right through to print and html.

Basically the rendering side of math - which \tex does so well.

This thread is starting to tease out some solutions - if we can
get feedback from those investigating further we might be able
to paint a clearer picture of what is good for what.
