Re: MathML and simple maths content

Hi Isabel,

I would be curious to see what answers you get, as I know in EPUBs best
practice (right now) is to do MathML AND plain text summaries (or whatever
can be done in terms of explanations). I don't work with math on websites,
so would love to know more about whether the two mesh or not.
