Mathematical Markup Language, or MathML, is an XML application for describing 
mathematical expression
structure and content. The goal of MathML is to enable mathematics to be served, 
received, and processed on the
Web, just as HTML has enabled this functionality for text.

This document begins with background information on mathematical notation, the 
problems it poses, and the
philosophy underlying the solutions MathML proposes. MathML describes expression 
structure, together with
mathematical context. About 25 of the MathML tags describe abstract notational 
structures, while another 50
provide a way of unambigously specifying the intended meaning of an expression. 
Additional chapters discuss how
the MathML content and presentation tags interact, and how MathML renderers 
might be implemented and should
interact with browsers. Finally, this document addresses the issue of MathML 
entities (extended characters) and
their relation to fonts.
