[OK, here we go again. No attachment this time] 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. It's at <http://people.w3.org/maxf/tmp/limf.png>. 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 languages, in particular right-to-left ones, 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
