Subject: RFA: mathml

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

i thought a metapackge for installing mathml (fonts for iceweasal/firefox) would be a convenience
to have mathml fonts display.

also I'd like to report that there are rendering issues with this page

http://cnx.org/content/m18192/latest/?collection=col10624

I mailed this message in respect of the packages needed for mathml..

latex-xft-fonts
ttf-opensymbol
xfonts-mathml

Since I cannot find anything related in orphaned packages or package for adoption, I thought I may
bring to light relevant sources for mathml if it helps in any way..

The site I mention at the top (cnx.org), I believe is using proper mathml notation, and points to 
a site to help install mathml..

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/fonts/#1.9
 ^ points to http://www.stixfonts.org
 and http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/fonts/stix/STIXBeta.zip
 
Stix Project I never heard of.. and looking inside it is a bunch of .otf files 
 ^can this be another potential package(the readme in it mentions 2007)
 

I hope this message is helpful so that if someone wants mathml, they can install a packagename
supporting it.. also I have little knowledge if there are "integrating" works(with iceweasal) and pardon
if this message sounds redundant, but I see no mathml easily installed on debian.(and currently mathml
 pages i'd like to see are not rendering properly)

I discovered that after unzipping the provided link to the stix zip file 
into ~/.fonts, running fc-cache -f ~/.fonts
then restarting iceweasal, that mathml webpage showed correctly

In addition to my original message, perhaps a new package for stix 
should be requested?

Thank you for looking into this..

(There's also a wikipediapage about it, and says license for stix is 
royalty-free)

I already packaged STIX fonts for squeeze so you can install it.
It is rather difficult for me to tell precisely which fonts
are necessary and sufficient for MathML, sorry.
