## Processing CDATA content with DSSSL/Jade?

 Subject: Processing CDATA content with DSSSL/Jade? From: Thomas Corte Date: Thu, 23 Jul 1998 23:45:59 +0100
Hello,

I wonder whether the following can be done with DSSSL/Jade; I have

<!ELEMENT TeXMath - - CDATA>

to be used like this:

<texmath>$x = \frac{y}{z}$</texmath>

for direct inclusion of TeX math within my SGML document instance
(thus obtaining a powerful Math markup language without having to deal
with MathML).

Now it would be nice if I could

- send the whole formula essentially unaltered through to Jadetex for
TeX formatting or even
- process the formula with TeX using an external process and convert it
to, say, GIF for inclusion in HTML output - I'm aware that this is by no
means a side-effect-free operation :-).

Up to now, I have not even found a way to get hold of CDATA contents within
my style sheet. Furthermore, there seems to be no way to call external
programs from DSSSL - this, however, is reasonable with respect to
side-effect-freeness and system-independence.

Any help would be appreciated.
