Hi Samuel,
Thanks for close reading. I corrected the things you mentioned but have
a few questions left:
(i cc to the context list)
% Quantifiers: I think having the quantified identifier in subscript
% is a very German notation.
% It changes on page 109, with a non-subscript x, but there still
% is a vertical bar where I would simply put a comma.
can you explain this a bit more, do we need an alternative representation?
(mathml completely ignores cultural aspects -)
% p. 35
% If prsubset means propersubset, then it looks like
% subset and notsubset have been exchanged respectively
% with prsubset and notprsubset.
I now have:
\def\MMLcSUBSET #1#2{\MMLcset\subset}
\def\MMLcPRSUBSET #1#2{\MMLcset\subseteq}
\def\MMLcNOTSUBSET #1#2{\MMLcset{\not\subset}}
\def\MMLcNOTPRSUBSET #1#2{\MMLcset{\not\subseteq}}
do you mean that i should swap these?
% p. 38
% The symbol for outer product more looks like a tensor product.
the mathml standard has no real examples and leaves much to guess, so
what do you expect to see (example)
% p. 56
% A cardinality is visualized using vertical bars.
% [But what exactly is meant with cardinality?]
% Are you serious when asking this question?
in the formal visualized math way, indeed; i wonder what the result
should look like, since the spec is fuzzy
% p. 137 sqq.
% Most symbols appear as a box with a question mark here.
that's because taco still has to finish his unicode math fonts ...
Hans
