as Roozbeh said, this would need some better idea what the semantics of that
field are, the contents looks rather ... (not saying :-) ...

what is the text/math notation supposed to mean? is this also TeX related?

i guess with a suitable utf8 support plus a suitable translation from
fontencoding specific commands (LICR) to math commands, (ie something like
inpmath) we could come up with a list for unicode that would allow better
support than what is currently in that file, since that would then work
