Subject: Re: [docbook] Equations in DocBook--general practices

Hi James,
If you haven't seen it, my book has a chapter on Math that summarizes 
several of the issues:


Including MathML is fine if you have a toolchain that can process it.  The 
DocBook XSL stylesheets do not, because it is beyond the scope of what XSLT 
can do.  But the stylesheets can pass it through to a downstream processor 
such as Antenna House, which can format MathML.
