Design Science Announces MathFlow for Arbortext; Supports MathML 2.0 Markup

Supports creating, editing, publishing of MathML-based equations within Arbortext products 

LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA, December 9, 2002 -- Design Science, Inc., the developers of the Equation Editor in Microsoft Office, MathType, WebEQ and MathPlayer, today announced that its MathFlow for Arbortext software will be demonstrated in booth #537 at the XML Conference 2002, December 10-12 in Baltimore, Maryland.

MathFlow for Arbortext provides organizations with a WYSIWYG environment where users can import, edit, maintain and publish MathML-based equations to multiple types of media, including print, PDF, HTML and HTML Help. 

MathML is the XML-based language for encoding mathematics developed by the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Math Working Group. MathML is quickly becoming the mathematical representation of choice for the scientific, engineering, pharmaceutical and aerospace industries, as well as the education community, and STM publishers (Science/Technical/Medical).

“For several years Design Science has invested much of its resources into making MathML a success. We see the exploding interest in MathML within the professional publishing community as validating that effort,” said Paul R. Topping, President of Design Science. “We’re also very happy to partner with Arbortext to provide organizations with MathFlow.” 

“Design Science has played a major role in the development of MathML within the W3C,” said David White, Director of Business Development for Arbortext. “We’re pleased to include the MathFlow product in Arbortext’s offerings.”


MathFlow for Arbortext will be available the first quarter of 2003 from Design Science.
