Hi Dave, Since neither XSL-FO nor HTML have the capability to format MathML, this would have to be handled with an XSL extension function. The extension would have to pass the MathML markup off to an external MathML engine that reads the MathML, generates an image, and inserts a reference to the image in the output. It would be tied to a particular MathML engine (most likely Java), of course, but it would be convenient. If you are talking only Antenna House and PDF output, then all you need is to buy the MathML extension for Antenna House. That already works with the MathML pass-through feature in the stylesheets.
