   Entity sets for XML

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

At  http://www.w3.org/Math/characters/

are links to documentation and XML DTD entity declarations for all the
ISO entity sets (ISO 8879 and ISO 9573-13) as well as MathML.

These sets differ from some earlier collections in that they use
Unicode 3.1 and 3.2 characters where suitable. (Unicode 3.2 for example
added long arrows specifically to help these mappings cover ISOAMSA)

The W3C Math Working group has just updated the MathML errata document
so that the MathML DTD now uses these mappings as its entity

Comments criticisms corrections etc are always welcome...

Since much of this is nothing really to do with Mathematics or MathML,
I'm also interested in seeing if we can relocate these to a more subject
neutral location. 

The DTD declarations (and HTML documentation) are all generated by XSLT
available at the above URL. Other declaration conventions could
similarly be generated if they were specified, There have been several
proposals for some kind of non-DTD syntax for these things for any
future XML 2....
