<dan_barrett> present Dan_B

scribe +


Cary and Dan have been working with the subgroup on cleaning up the table. They will go through it at least one more time to make sure everything is clear for Neil

Stefan presented about Chemistry pedagogy and MathML

George greatly appreciated Stefan's presentation and will use it with the DIAGRAM project with Stefan's permission

Neil would like the equations in MathML to use so Stefan will send everyone the presentation

Neil wants to know what people think of the work required

Eleanor thinks this is a better idea than having someone manually read it and Cary agrees

Dan believes as a publisher that you have to make them accessible, it might be difficult but can't sell otherwise and the publishers would prefer a standard which this would provide

George thinks extended descriptions is betterand would like to publish by best practices and echos that having this as a standard over a phased period of time would be reasonable

Stefan says it will probably be 70 to 30 in terms of chemical to algebretic expressions in chemistry so most will be under this wrapper

Neil would like to simplify the reading as he is worried about how long it is

He would like some way to make a script announcement that says "This is Chemistry"

Neil has no concerns with the suggested wrapper structure

Dan suggests making a program that would be easy for authors like the equivalent of turning bold on and off

Dan would like to Work on getting this into the standard, make an authoring tool, and address accessability and look for NSF funding

Wire-ess (Spelling?) looks easy to add this in says Neil

Wiris corrected spelling

Next call is June 18th same time
