yes :-) But as long as it's used anywhere in the world, then MathML ought to support it. There are more schoolkids learning mathematics using a possibly bizzarre notation than there are researchers using the "standard" one. > When I was studying at high school here in France, I had never seen > "tg" in > the books or on the board.

It's true that I don't really know if schoolkids in France still use the old long division notation (I suspect they do), or if students still use tg for tangent. But again, we don't want to discard it if it's still in use somewhere. IMO, it should indeed be made obsolete, but then should we just say MathML is only supporting the one world-wide mathematical notation? That seems to go against internationalisation principles.
