You seem to be the only person, doing the latest work.</p>
<p>What is my angle? Would like to see MathML working, just as HTML 3.2 does. (Seems to be getting there.) Mathematical typesetting in browsers, matching of LaTeX format.</p>

MathML code is often generated and contains e.g. LaTeX source as <semantics> annotation, that could be used in the text-only version of the mail. One could even rely on <a href="http://dpcarlisle.blogspot.fr/2009/12/mathml-as-ascii-art.html" rel="nofollow">David Carlisle's MathML to ASCII art XSLT stylesheet</a> or something similar to provide a readable fallback to text-only mail clients.</p>Writing mathematics in emails - Erik Dahlströmurn:md5:1fb5944d77f7034314a85c97abcb3a772012-11-21T14:21:40+01:002012-11-21T15:21:40+01:00Erik Dahlström<p>Sending and receiving MathML in Opera's built-in mail client works fine as well.

Give me a few days and I'll have something for you. A real math formula editor for Thunderbird based on ASCIIToMathML.js ?-) Stay tuned.</p>Writing mathematics in emails - Paul Toppingurn:md5:b949f3f55bdca943a8606a6a052c77ca2012-11-15T17:22:35+01:002012-11-15T18:22:35+01:00Paul Topping<p>We at Design Science worked hard to get the MathML Clipboard spec out there. Unfortunately, it is hard to know which applications support it as it is mostly an under-the-covers thing that doesn't make it into feature lists. The same could be said for MathML support in general.</p>
<p>Because our MathType equation editor produces MathML (and LaTeX), we have compiled a list of applications it works with and many support MathML: <a href="http://www.dessci.com/en/products/MathType/works_with.asp" title="http://www.dessci.com/en/products/MathType/works_with.asp" rel="nofollow">http://www.dessci.com/en/products/M...</a></p>Writing mathematics in emails - fredwurn:md5:e7c6efd44a328c4f5994de3331c441fa2012-11-15T17:16:53+01:002012-11-15T18:16:53+01:00fredw@Murray: thank you for the information. That would definitely be great for interoperability if Outlook could use MathML too. Considering Microsoft Word's current math support, I'm sure that's not something too difficult to do.Writing mathematics in emails - Murray Sargenturn:md5:0aaa182671e7fe15326101e5da4d1b542012-11-15T15:12:41+01:002012-11-15T16:12:41+01:00Murray Sargent<p>Microsoft Outlook has supported math in email since 2007. I use it quite frequently. It doesn't work with MathML, though, and it would be nice to do so. Very interesting blog post.</p>Writing mathematics in emails - fredwurn:md5:4ac28daa47a695a104a25cb9e28920e32012-11-15T13:11:04+01:002012-11-15T14:11:42+01:00fredw<p>@Minh: Thank you for the information. That would be great if someone could test and confirm.</p>
<p>@Neil: There are many tools that already support transferring MathML and a clipboard specification is included in the MathML REC, so I think it is a very good idea if Gecko implements it. Typical example would be to use the Windows Math Input Panel to handwrite and directly insert equations in Gecko's editor or to copy a formula on Wikipedia and paste it into a Computer Algebra System for further processing. The possibility to rely on MathML authoring tools to copy and paste MathML in Thunderbird is only one of the aspect. Of course, I agree with you that ideally the editor should be improved to handle MathML (and SVG) better. Although Amaya is sometimes buggy, it does that quite well for example. That's definitely something I would like the MathML team to do and I have a couple of ideas, but that's going to be a lot of work especially if we want something more than just an input box for LaTeX. And as you know Thunderbird, Seamonkey or MathML are currently really community-driven projects, so the development of new features is not always going as fast as we could wish.</p>
