- This misuse of namespaces does not look very 'wiki'.
$ ... $ and $$ ... $$ look more similar to ''...'' and
Yes, but $ is already commonly used, so you need a more rare combination
like [$ ... $] and [$$ ... $$]. That also brings across more the
include-aspect of the thing.
I just took a look at MathML. May I assume that
we are not wanting to write
MathML to enter formulas instead of something TeXish?
Last time this was discussed most people felt that MathML was too hard to
read and write. There are already some packages to translate TeX to MathML.
However, I don't know to what extent these are really "production ready".
I took a deeper look at MathML today. One thing seems to be a showstopper
in the Moment: For Mozilla to render the MathML extensions the page must
have Content-Type "text/xml" instead of "text/html". But in XML many
our pages are not valid, e.g. a line break has to be coded as <BR\> in
XML instead of <br> in HTML. Mozilla's parser will stop and create an
error message as soon as it finds an unmatched tag like <br>.
