That would simplify the presentation and actualy distribute the
the formula, not just some HTML+ representation (although someone could
always write an HTML+ to Mathematica converter :-)

Is this assuming that the standard TeX program/process is run
to produce a math formula?
Here's a question for Phil Hallam-Baker:
Do you have an encapsulated way of producing images of
elementary TeX math expressions that can be embedded in html files
with reasonable alignment? I could make immediate use of that.

I have not seen ISO 12083, is your proposal
compatible with this standard?
I like the principle of your proposal, though I must say
that the sub/superscript tags look a bit clumsy. This is of course
not really a problem with a good editor. It would be nice
if we could add easy-to-use facilities for embedding more complicated
stuff in the future (as images or other).

I am looking forward to seeing the HTML+ math proposal.
Do you have a prelimiary copy which includes the math parts?
