`While we are speaking of that, If I may give my opinion: I agree with Norman`

`that using images to render maths isn't a good solution in the long-term. The`

`fact that it is SVG improves the situation a bit because fonts will be rendered`

`fine, but there are other problems to address: for example it is difficult to`

`align the baseline of an inline-rendered equation with the text's baseline. It`

`also is not possible to break an equation into multiple lines.`

`A native MathML renderer will be necessary to beat TeX in this area. I was`

`thinking of writing one for Fop but I'm missing time and for now I'm in the font`

`subsystem stuff.`

The work referred by Siarhei Baidun may definitely be interesting. Vincent Jeremias Maerki a écrit :

The MathML extension uses JEuclid to convert the MathML to SVG internally so we get quite good quality. I don't think it is possible to create XSL-FO code from MathML because you can't properly place all the elements. Doing that with SVG is a lot better.

I'm not sure if I have the permission to post here, but maybe you will excuse my post if so. I am not sure if using JEuclid is the right way to deal with MathML. As far as I understand JEuclid transforms a MathML expression into an image. If this is correct, than I would found this the wrong way in principle. Wouldn't it be nicer if the MathML expression is converted into XSL:FO it self? I am not very in this field, but as far as I understand MathML (pm) this should be the way to go. Or do I completely misinterpret something?Jeremias Maerki
