Hi Folks, 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 mathauthoringtool ... 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 passthrough MathMLformulas. It would be great if something like this would work: Example:: **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 <m:math> <m:mrow> <m:msup> <m:mi>x</m:mi> <m:mn>2</m:mn> </m:msup> <m:mo>+</m:mo><m:msup> <m:mi>y</m:mi> <m:mn>2</m:mn> </m:msup> <m:mo>=</m:mo><m:msup> <m:mi>z</m:mi> <m:mn>2</m:mn> </m:msup> </m:mrow> </m:math> The MathML part should go untouched through the writer and replace the formula. Is this the way you are planning to implement it? (It would be a nice way to pass through SVGs as well.) Rgds, Gunnar.
