Abstract / Description
This paper discusses the major issues of publishing, writing, use of standards, and search engines for mathematical contents on the web. We also suggest two hypothetical features, first one describing a concept of a rich text box called 'Equation Box' (EBox) that provides a facility to writing text and math equations in line. The second feature describes the underpinning working of a MIR (Mathematical Information Retrieval) system. The paper has been divided into four parts. The first part focuses on available web standards for publishing mathematical expressions and reusing them between different web applications, the second part focuses on various interfaces, commonly known as 'Equation Editors' provided to write and edit mathematical expressions, and their related problems. The third part deals with Digital Mathematical Libraries (DMLs) which provide collection of such resources to users, and finally the fourth part deals with MIRs, available as Open Source, and their effective and efficient use to tackle typical problems of Information Retrieval in this particular domain.
