For Immediate Release

MathFlow Extends MathML Support to XyEnterprise’s XPP

New version also adds features for Epic and XMetaL users

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- May 31, 2005 -- Design Science announced today the release of version 1.5 of its MathFlow™ line of MathML publishing workflow components. A major feature of this new release is the ability of MathFlow to work with XyEnterprise’s XML Professional Publisher (XPP 7.3). This release also adds significant functionality for Arbortext Epic and Blast Radius XMetaL users.

MathFlow Editor now integrates with XPP’s editor to provide a user-friendly interface for creating and modifying mathematical expressions that can then be formatted by XPP as part of a larger document.

MathFlow Editor allows Epic, XMetaL and XPP users to toggle between a Design View for WYSIWYG editing of math expressions, and a Source View for direct editing of the corresponding MathML elements and attributes. The overall usability and look-and-feel has been improved with new and updated toolbar graphics, and revised Help screens. Support for Arbortext’s Enterprise E-Content Engine (E3) has also been added.

Dr. Robert Miner, Director of New Product Development at Design Science and co-chair of the Math Interest Group at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), said, “Design Science continues to maintain its high level of commitment to publishers working with MathML. Since the initial release of MathFlow in 2003, we have listened to our publishing customers and have come through with a continuous stream of enhancements.”

In addition to the MathFlow Editor, other components in the MathFlow product line include:

  • MathFlow Exchange, which works with Arbortext’s Interchange to convert Microsoft Word documents containing MathType and Equation Editor equations into XML+MathML.

  • MathFlow Composer, which works with Arbortext’s Composer to convert XML+MathML documents into PDF or web pages, for both print or online use.

Evaluation copies of MathFlow may be obtained by calling 800-827-0685 (US & Canada), 562-432-2920 (outside US & Canada), or by submitting a form on the Design Science web site at
