Good idea, especially since they're trying to extend their reach to include a larger number of students by offering android apps and web-apps.  The type-setting issue (especially as it pertains to stylesheets), IMHO, is a significant obstacle that might otherwise generate more revenue for them from the purchases of Mathematica software, etc.  There are already free Wolfram Alpha-based apps, for example, that undermine their android app sales.
