We recently received a note from Bob Mathews in Design Science
requesting examples of mathematics documents. Since I thought this
project might be of interest to other members of the group trying to
solve the puzzles of MathML, I have obtained Bob's permission to post
his request to the group.

> this project, we would greatly appreciate it. The documents can be in
> any format -- Word, PDF, HTML, XHTML + MathML, XML, etc. -- but the
> main thing we're interested in is to get documents that use MathML.
> Word documents are ok because we can convert them to XHTML + MathML. I
> don't know how many of your lessons or other documents are in Word
> format, but I suspect many (if not most) of them are.
> Please e-mail the documents to me, and feel free to ask if you have
> any questions about the project.
> Thanks for your help,
