**To**:*tex-fonts@math.utah.edu***Subject**:**help needed -- adding math symbols to Unicode****From**:*Barbara Beeton <bnb@ams.org>***Date**: Thu, 29 Oct 1998 16:48:12 -0500 (EST)- Content-Length: 1341

The complement of math symbols included in Unicode is insufficient to publish "real" mathematics on the Web, even if browser support were available. However, with XML gaining ground, the latter seems to be just a matter of time. At the American Math Society, we have been trying to tackle the first problem -- will the symbols be ready when the browsers are -- and we have now collected several hundred symbols not recognized by Unicode that we will propose to be added. However, we don't know how all of these symbols are used, or what they mean, and we're asking for help. The Web page http://www.ams.org/STIX/glyphs/proposal/newsub/challenge.html contains a selection of these symbols along with questions about them and a list of the information we need in order to convince the Unicode Technical Committee (UTC). If you are familiar with the notation used in scientific publishing -- perhaps you're an author who has written journal articles or books in math or some related field -- please take a look at this site and see if you can help. The UTC meets the first week of December. We must have all documentation by November 20 in order to prepare our presentation. The selection of symbols will change weekly until our deadline, so please plan to visit the site every week through November 20. -- barbara beeton
