10. Future directions

  • Complete the MathML handling
  • Handle more variety in property values (eg colors, fonts)
  • Deal with more complex tables
  • Support SVG. How?
    • By direct intepretation and mapping to raw PDF
    • By translation to MetaPost, and spawning a MetaPost process
    • By pre-processing to existing TeX graphics languages
    In any case, SVG fragments need to be recognized directly to perform in-line graphical functions (setting text at an angle?)
  • Use Unicode-based TeX variant (Omega) to handle non-Latin material more naturally

I will be very glad to discuss details with anyone. Contact me (Sebastian Rahtz) as sebastian.rahtz@it.ox.ac.uk
