A Document Structure to Support Multimodal Representation of Mathematics
A document structure based on an authoring model which addresses the user needs as a fundamental requirement is proposed. The model is organized around a scope mechanism that allows the mapping between semantics and syntax to be modified at any time during authoring. This process supports the dynamic characteristics of the meaning-to-syntax binding necessary during the authoring of matematical concepts. Multi-purpose documents are supported by a semantics-based mark-up that porvides the possibility for mathematical concepts to be processed according to the specific requirements of applications.
