- Toward a standard set of mathematical glyphs (character symbols)
- This was reported to the Electronic Math Journals
list as possibly a unique opportunity to influence various
international standards bodies in presenting a complete set of
mathematical and other scientific characters for inclusion in standard
character sets. AMS deadline: November 20, 1998.

- Setting Mathematics with SGML
- Each version (e.g., version 2.0, version 2.3, ...) of Hypertext
Markup Language (HTML) is an example
of a markup language that is defined under the Standard Generalized
Markup Language (SGML) regime. See also our
departmental
pointers to information about SGML and XML and pointers to
campus SGML and
XML resources.

- Setting Mathematics with SGML or XML via GELLMU
- Bill Hammond's experimental design for using LaTeX-like markup
to set mathematics under SGML as pre-processing for LaTeX, HTML, and
possibly many other formats. Not for beginners.

- W3C plans for marking up mathematics
- Broad overview. Earlier material
of the W3C HTML WG may be found at
W3C.

- W3C Recommendation: Mathematical Markup Language (Math ML)
- MathML became a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) recommendation
on 7 April 1998. It is recommended as the standard for mathematical
notation in documents served on the web. It has evolved from earlier
ideas for mathematical markup under a 1995 draft (expired) for version 3.0
of HTML. MathML falls under the umbrella of
Extensible Markup Language (XML)
XML regime, which
itself is another W3C recommendation. The W3C testbed browser
Amaya has MathML capability.

- Magliery's Posting in "www-html@w3.org" (1996)
- Near the end of this article one finds mention of NCSA work
on a modular framework for Web browsing. This is important to those,
such as mathematicians, who have special needs. If general purpose
browsing tools do not meet special needs, one only needs to change
the relevant components to accommodate the special needs.
Search on "build" to find this part.

- TeX-Related Information

- TeX4ht: Eitan Gurari's TeX-to-HTML translator
- This translator is driven mainly by TeX, the Program. When
invoked with special macros, TeX inserts DVI "specials" in the compiled
output (DVI file) that provide structural information for DVI
processors. This structural
information may be used for
formatting compiled TeX or LaTeX markup in SGML languages such as HTML.
"tex4ht" formats such an enhanced DVI in HTML.
This approach should be optimal for obtaining renditions of legacy TeX or LaTeX source documents in formats not derivable from ordinary DVI. (Original document markup in appropriate SGML languages will soon be optimal for new documents.)

- This article by Keith Shafer and Roger Thompson of OCLC reports
on OCLC work toward the translation of SGML-based mathematical markup
to presentation format.

- WebEQ
- WebEQ is a system based on MathML for getting math in web pages
for browsing by non-mathematical audiences before the general availability
of XML-compliant browsers. This site includes documentation of the WebEQ
input language, which is called
WebTeX and which is convertible into MathML. It also has
A Gentle Introduction to
MathML.
