Mathematics and Graphics

  • Eric van Herwijen


In the previous chapter I have explained the usual way of including mathematics and graphics in SGML documents, i.e. through NOTATION. Here I show that because of their tree structure, you can go a step further and use SGML to describe mathematical and graphical objects.
