MathML 2 is a large specification and was a great improvement over MathML 1. The MathML working group has spent of lot of energy to produce a second edition that really meets the current needs of implementers and users, clarifying and improving a lot of issues, and taking into account the latest Web standards. INRIA, as a research institute, producer of scientific documents and participant in the working groups that produced the MathML specifications is pleased to welcome this new edition. We believe that it will certainly be a step further in the adoption of MathML as a standard for all scientific documents.
