Dr. ODF sidebar

While we’re waiting for Part 5 of the Dr. ODF series, I thought I would point out a connection between a recent blog entry by IBM‘s Rob Weir and something we examined in Part 4. In his blog entry “A Demo: Mathematica, MathML and ODF,” Rob talks about how some MathML is stored in a component in the ODF file and recorded in the manifest with MIME type application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.formula.

If we were searching for all mathematical expressions in the file, we could use the manifest to walk through them. Indeed, it would not take more than the simple Python code I’ve shown so far to extract all these math objects.

Parts: 1 2 3 4 5
