Why couldn't it have done the same with TeX inputs, or TeX input files in .src format? -- especially given the small size, simplicity, superb quality, and totally free availability of the TeX program. This is especially given the scientific and technical locations at which it was developed, the scientific and technical purposes for which it was developed, and the scientific and technical people by whom was first developed (they must have all known and routinely used TeX). Was HTML really invented so advertisers could throw endless advertisement, full of Flash animations at us, on every page of output as well as in pop-ups and pop-unders -- and still not be able to display even the simplest display equation? The word "travesty" seems appropriate here. If this capability at last becomes available (finally!!) in HTML6, even with coding like <html> <body> <script language=tex> --- any ordinary Plain TeX input --- </script> </body> </html> that will be great -- but very long overdue -- and _very_ much more important and useful than making Mathematica available in HTML6, although I have no objections at all to seeing that happen also
