Hmmm I can't get my mind around the fact that some people DON'T want MathML in Gecko....

....proving yet again what a narrow-minded little bugger I am. But aside from that, think of what this will do for education, as Adam FitzGerald mentioned. I myself, when out looking for info on, for example, fractal algorithms[1] am constantly annoyed by the fact that there is no such thing as MathML.

Trust me, (c^3)/(x^7) = ([3[(x-z)/(y-z)]]/2.4)^5, to quote a mythical equation, would look a whole lot better in MathML.
