Hi group, I'm making a second attempt for some feedback here. Anyone have thoughts on this thread? Thank you!

In many cases, there is a character for a fraction, such as =. But in other cases, such as 7/23 there is no single character. I don't want to do this <sup>7</sup>/<sub>23</sub> as this doesn't seem semantic. So we were doing the non-normal fractions as mathML. But then we had inconsistencies in the markup. So then we went to all math ML for fractions. But since our standards also have several equations, we ran into the issue of a transform not knowing what is a fraction and what is an equation. (We are also capturing an eps of all equations as a backup.) So we considered the idea of adding in an attribute like this: <inline-formula content-type="fraction">. My question is what are others doing in this situation? It seems pretty common, but I am not sure what the best approach is, or what else to consider. Thank you for your help!
