What is the latest spec of MathML supported by AOO 3.4.1?
Will AOO 4.0 conform to the latest & greatest version?
(I'm limited to a dialup link at the moment, and searching the 'net is almost painful )
That namespace works for all versions of MathML, i.e., 1.0, 1.01, 2.0 & 3.0.acknak wrote:... namespace declaration ... <math xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML"> ...
ODF uses the MathML standard and Apache OpenOffice touts its support of ODF. But is Apache OpenOffice even compatible with MathML (ignore conform for the moment)?acknak wrote:If you want to get some substantive discussion over this, or communicate a specific suggestion, you'll need to use the project email list. There are few developers here and all decisions are discussed on the mailing list.

"... this would be a load of work, there are loads of features in mathml2.0 which are not supported by our starmath at all, and some which are likely not to map well to the new mathml 2.0 without a lot of effort on our side. ..."

"We tried to support MathML 1.01. We would really need a new MathML 2.0 filter. Theres a good deal of work in this, not least that the formula editor itself would have to be enhanced to handle the various features of MathML that it currently cannot."
"... Full MathMl 2.0 supoprt entails a lot of work , and can be expected to be a rather middle to long term goal. The trouble with current state of affairs is that if one writes an ODF compliant mathMl object ( by eg directly editing the XML file) OOO will wipe it clean on load/save.
This destructive behaviour is rather problematic..."
