Use MathJax for MathML equation rendering

Currently, Oxygen uses the JEuclid library to render MathML equations. Development activity for JEuclid appears to have ended in 2010, although there are some personal Github forks floating around to fix various issues. It would be great if Oxygen could move to the MathJax rendering library. MathJax...

Re: Automatically inserting xref and link format, scope, and type attributes

Thanks Sorin!

The @type attribute is useful because we can have CSS that formats <xref> and <link> elements differently for different element types.

Re: Can I use 'html5' DITA-OT plugins with PDF Chemistry?

Hi Julien,

I found that the HTML5 extension points (dita.xsl.html5, dita.xsl.strings) are applied; it is specifically the dita.xsl.topicpull extension point that is not applied by PDF Chemistry. I will send a testcase so you can confirm if this is an expected behavior or not.

Thank you!

It seems like the text-mode unwrap operation should be enhanced to be schema-aware so it knows which elements are space-preserved and which are not.
