Murray Sargent: Math in Office [Murray Sargent]

Murray Sargent is a software development engineer. He often speaks on "Math in Office". I quote: In the talks, I describe and demonstrate how Unicode's rich mathematical character set combined with OpenType font technology, TeX 's mathematical typography principles, and enhanced autocorrection can be used to produce high-quality, streamlined technical text processing in Office 2007. The approach is currently implemented in Word 2007 and in Office 2007's RichEdit editor, which is also used in the Microsoft Math Calculator. He goes on: Infrastructures outside and inside of Microsoft have emerged to enable major advances in the editing and display of mathematical formulae. While TeX has been widely available since 1986, most of the other infrastructures have become available only recently.

  • [La]TeX: current tech-doc standards
  • Unicode 4.0: includes ~2000 math symbols
  • MathML 2.0: math K 12 and beyond
  • OpenType font technology: special math tables
  • New math font (Cambria Math)
  • Math layout handler
  • Shared math input components
  • MS Office environment, autocorrect
