Your philosophy is right, but why does it seem wrong in application, I don't know ;) My idea is making the writing/editing possible in a text terminal. (Perhaps with some character shape changes in case of local languages.) But you need a big system to write math. If you can write your changes in e-lisp for emacs, I agree with you, but not every user wants to switch to another program for writing his formulas (specially professionals). They prefer writing the input themselves, and this is not possible with MathML. > i reserve my love for humans and plants :-} Intersting point to notice. My girlfriend hates TeX.
