MathML rendering for PDF

Post by BB_[A] » Sat Mar 06, 2021 12:23 am

Greetings,

We are working with a client to migrate their PDF plugin (based on the demo plugin from 1.5.2) to DITA-OT 3.6. They have some pretty complex equations, so we’re not sure that Antenna House MathML support is sufficient. Any recommendations for rendering complex MathML equations in PDF transforms?

Thanks,

Hello Bill,

If you use Antenna House for creating your PDF outputs you should ask their support team which MathML library they are using.

If you want to use Oxygen PDF Chemistry, within the DITA Map PDF - based on HTML5 & CSS transformation, MathML equations will be rendered using JEuclid library.

We plan to change this library to MathJax in a future release, if this is the library you want for equation rendering, I can add your vote into our feature request.

Regards,
Julien
