OpenMath XML Specification

The XMDS tools use an XML design to specify problems.  This is
the right approach.  There is a staggering amount of work going
on in the XML world and Microsoft itself is building the next
generation of Windows around XML.

However, you should know about the OpenMath project.  This is a
worldwide effort to define mathematical semantics in XML.  It is
related to the MathML project, but orthogonal to it.  MathML
defines presentation only.  OpenMath defines how math objects interact.

Thanks for making your tools available!
