Hello Everyone!

It would be great to have MathML support in both Batik and FOP.
Therefore I would like to begin writing a MathML rendering library that
can be used with both Batik and FOP.

I am not very familiar with Batik and FOP internals thus I have to begin
by asking a few stupid questions.

1) MathML code would be embedded in SVG by means of foreign-object
elements and in XSL:FO by means of instream-foreign-object elements. In
both cases: can MathML embedded in this way be part of a normal
text-run? Is it possible to make FOP/Batik align the mathematical
baseline of the MathML code with the baseline of the surrounding text?

2) What kind of interface would such a library have to provide? Should I
provide a Batik-Bridge for each MathML element? Could FOP then be made
to render MathML via Batik? Or would another approach be more feasible?
I would be very interested in an approach that allows for a single
rendering library to be used with both FOP and Batik as this reduces
maintenance costs. What is the best way to tackle this problem?
