setupMMLappearance
Hello. I am used to using \setupMMLappearance[mtable][alternative=abc] to change the way the mathml module treats mtable alignments. I've just discovered it no longer seems to have any effect. What I need to set up is an alignment where the first column of an mtable is rightaligned (ragged left), the second is centred, and the third is leftaligned (ragged right). But I keep getting the first column leftaligned, which makes multiline equations look awful. Is there a new mechanism for setting these alignments? It looked like it from reading newmml, but there don't seem to be any examples of usage. Can someone help? Secondary question: how can I increase the gap between rows in an mtable  at the moment they are very squashed. Sample code follows  produces ugly output on the garden: \usemodule[newmml] \setupMMLappearance[mtable][alternative=b] \starttext \startXMLdata <formula><math><mtable><mtr><mtd><mfrac><mrow><mtext>Average inventory</mtext></mrow><mrow><mtext>Cost of sales</mtext></mrow></mfrac><mo>×</mo><mspace width="0.35em"/><mtext>365</mtext></mtd><mtd><mo>=</mo></mtd><mtd><mtext>average number of days to turn inventory into sales</mtext></mtd></mtr><mtr><mtd><mfrac><mrow><mtext>£305</mtext></mrow><mrow><mtext>£1,830</mtext></mrow></mfrac><mo>×</mo><mspace width="0.35em"/><mtext>365</mtext></mtd><mtd><mo>=</mo></mtd><mtd><mtext>60.83 days</mtext></mtd></mtr></mtable></math></formula> \stopXMLdata \stoptext I'm using mk II. Thanks very much, Duncan

the current mathml module uses the second implementation (mkiv) or the third one (mkiv) you might want to load the xtag: xtagmml

hm, the mkiv module is supposed to support the attributes in any case, just collect examples and i'll see what i can do (in principle the mkii module is frozen and i will improve the mkiv one which is just in its first incarnation and to some extend already supports mathml 3)

just the setup command or attributes

i guessed as much anyway, collect examples an di'll look into it when i'm back from the tug conference Hans  Hans Hagen  PRAGMA ADE Ridderstraat 27  8061 GH Hasselt  The Netherlands tel: 038 477 53 69  fax: 038 477 53 74  www.pragmaade.com  www.pragmapod.nl
