18:11 run4flat jberger, documentation idea
18:12 run4flat We have your wonderful latex2text plugin thinger
18:12 run4flat What's really cool, though, is that CPAN will display =for html sectinos with MathML
18:13 run4flat So wouldn't it be awesome if we could provide an author-side preprocessor that examined =for latex commands
18:13 run4flat and replaced the following =for html, =for text, or anything else, with corresponding mathml or asciitex output?
18:14 run4flat Prima has its own =for directives, too, so we could target that with images, I think
18:14 run4flat nothing urgent, just a thought
18:15 shadowpaste "run4flat" at 217.168.150.38 pasted "Example pod with mathml that is rendered properly at search.cpan.org/pod2html" (43 lines) at http://paste.scsys.co.uk/226196
18:18 jberger isn't mathml client side rendering?
18:18 jberger if that's the case I think we should target mathjax
18:19 jberger http://docs.mathjax.org/en/v1.1-latest/start.html
18:19 jberger it does both
18:20 run4flat so did I
18:20 run4flat but cpan doesn't like javascript
18:21 run4flat and btw, they're up to v2.1
18:21 run4flat :-)
18:31 run4flat Here's a Perl Latex to MathML, written in Perl: http://pillars.che.pitt.edu/LaTeXMathML/
18:35 jberger think that guy would let us put it on CPAN?
18:36 jberger TeX::MathML or something
18:36 jberger I guess its GPL, we could probably just do it
18:39 jberger eeeeeeeeeeeeh, its not my favorite
18:43 jberger actually that library is pretty aweful
18:44 jberger awful
19:42 run4flat I looked over it. It didn't look great, but maybe there are gems to be extracted from the tar sands
19:43 run4flat alternatively, do you think we could get cpan to allow for inclusion of mathjax?
23:43 jberger its worth a try
23:44 jberger since it comes from a cdn its possible that it wouldn't add much latency
23:44 jberger most browsers will cache cdn supplied javascript libraries
