As a mathematician I have the bad habit to display some formulas in my
documents. Up to now I do this in reStructuredText by inserting
formulas as GIFs. Of course, this becomes very annoying as the number of
formulas increases. On the other hand it is not a goal of reStructuredText
to be a math-authoring-tool ...
However, I became aware that there is a (not yet implemented)
"raw"-directive which looks very promising to me. For example, I could
use it to pass-through MathML-formulas. It would be great if something
like this would work:
**Pythagorean triple**: Any set of three integers satisfying
the DIOPHANTINE EQUATION |formula|. For example, (x,y,z)=(3,4,5)
is a Pythagorean triple.
.. |formula| raw:: html
The MathML part should go untouched through the writer and replace
Is this the way you are planning to implement it?
(It would be a nice way to pass through SVGs as well.)
