Hi John,

I cannot recommend a forum for beginners, but I can suggest a possible
solution for your MathML to PDF problem. Design Science (the creators of
MathFlow) has a component for Windows in beta that converts MathML into
EPS, which can be scripted into your processing steps. Please contact me
if you are interested in testing the component or would like more

Best wishes,

Hi all,

We're writing a lot of documentation in XML. Some of our implementation
is homebrew, and I'd like to find a good forum for relative beginners.

The basic workflow writing a lot of XML containing a lot of MathML
(probably Epic / MathFlow), validated against a DTD (probably a subset
of Docbook), then processed through XSLT (Antenna?) to PDF.

I've got the equation editing part under control, my next challenge is
to reder the MathML into PDF. Failing that, HTML is Plan B.

All suggestions welcome, but preferably an XML list focused on doc
