Hi all, Max Froumentin from the W3 consortium is seeking feedback on Mathematics in Persian. His message to the list was bounced for some reason, so I'm forwarding his message. Please keep him CCed when replying.
Thanks, behdad ================================= From: Max Froumentin <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> After asking Dan Brickley to forward my message, I was convinced to join the list in order to formulate my request more specifically. As I wrote before, the MathML group at W3C are looking at world-wide mathematical notations, in order to find out if anything's missing in the language. Right-to-Left writing is the first that came to our minds so we spent some time already to look at Arabic, and we're going to investigate Hebrew and others. We found one example of persian mathematics that seemed to differ from Arabic. See attached image. I don't know any of either Arabic or Persian, but I'm told the equation differs from arabic in that the numbers are different. The limit operator is also special in that it appears to be stretchable. The central question really is: does Persian mathematical notation have any such particularities that would make its layout different from other right-to-left languages, like Arabic, and that would then require special constructs in the MathML language? Thanks for any insight, Max. _______________________________________________ PersianComputing mailing list PersianComputing@lists.sharif.edu http://lists.sharif.edu/mailman/listinfo/persiancomputing
