Dear Docutils developers, I finally managed to set up, test, and commit a first version of math support for standard Docutils. This is an adaption of Jens Jørgen Mortensen's latexmath sandbox project  many thanks to Jens. Input and internal storage is in LaTeXmath format (like in the Sphinx math support and the rst2pdf writer). The following writers work: * xml, pseudoxml: content (LaTeX source) in a math tag, * latex, xetex: put content in math environments, * html4css1, html4strict: embedded MathML. TODO: * The followint writers are currently not supported: * odt, MathML_ can be imported by the Math module. However, putting MathML into an ODP file seems tricky: http://idippedut.dk/post/2008/01/25/DoyourmathODFandMathML.aspx http://idippedut.dk/post/2008/03/03/NowIgetitODFandMathML.aspx * manual (is there math support in manual documents?), * rst2pdf (reportlab): (merge with its math extension). * Should we try to keep it compatible with `Math support in Sphinx`_? .. _Math support in Sphinx: http://sphinx.pocoo.org/ext/math.html More links and considerations are in docutils/docs/dev/todo.txt in the SVN repository.
