<!-- MAIN CONTENT -->
<h1>Abacus:  MathML Editing for Mozilla Composer and friends</h1>

<p>Abacus is an extension for Mozilla-based applications for writing and editing MathML expressions.  These expressions
define the <em>presentation</em> and the <em>content</em> of a mathematical expression for other user-agents on the WWW.</p>

<p>Abacus takes as its inspiration the <a href="www.w3.org/Amaya">W3C Amaya editor</a>, using JavaScript and XUL to 
create a flexible interface for editing MathML.  Abacus also insists on exporting content MathML, to convey to other 
user-agents the
exact mathematical definition of an expression.</p>

<p>Abacus is intended to be a foundation for developing web-based mathematics tools on the Mozilla platform.  
However, there is quite a bit of work to be done before Abacus can be useful to the end-user community at large.</p>
