[Athen] Production of EPUB 3 Content?

EPUB 3 has support for MathML, but which reading systems support it is still
up in the air. It seems that iBooks has some. We are working on the open
source reader under Readium, which Bookshare is supporting.

Pipeline 2 supports conversions to EPUB 3. I can put you in touch with
developers and the open source efforts.

Hi George,

In your e-mail, you wrote the following:

Does this mean that there is support for mathematical equations in ePub
3 with the Tobi tool or is this just referring to the support for MathML
in DAISY books? Will there be support for converting DTBook documents
with MathML content into ePub 3 files with other DAISY tools?
