A well written article expounding on the need for mathemetics support on the web. MathML would be more useful than many people think. The ability to type set formulas in a readable fashion is crucial to almost any science publication. Correct support would also allow the development of truly interactive learning mechanisms over the web for all the hard sciences. This type of "distributed learning" is a real point of focus for many major academic institutions and could provide valuable access to educational material for people in far flung places.
