MathML Status Update

Friday April 14th, 2000

There's a new MathML Status Update at written by Roger B. Sidje, who has been driving the project. This report is quite detailed, but also very thorough, so if you are interested in MathML at all, you should check it out. A lot has happened in the 6 or 7 months since the last update. Practically all presentation tags are recognized, and everything is coming together really well. The MathML team has done a great job! This is what Open Source is about, folks.

I think they are called "unemployed" at this point.

I prefer the term "flunkie". However, I never applied that term to all of them. Also, I never used "Netscape engineers are flunkies" as a password.

It appears MathML is coming along really well. Does anyone know if Netscape is going to include it in their finished product if it's ready in time and will it start appearing in the standard builds.

Well, I would hope that MathML would be like a downloadable component like VRML in IE. That way people who dont want it dont need to have it. But from my limited understanding of this project that this wont be possible with out some rewrites.

I hope someone figures out something.
