Comment (by david):

 Replying to [comment:11 kohlhase]:

 I'm not sure that OM and MML should be inlined into he xhtml (not
 necessarily against it) traditionally openmath has been restricted to
 specific CD fields that were just openmath (FMP and friends) with
 descriptive text being in fields that did not have any OM (Description and

 We could allow a richer text markup (eg xhtml) without necessarily
 allowing OM.
 CDUses and general consistency checking gets harder if we allow
 unconstrained use of OM in text fields. (Although some things might be
 easier to express...)

 As for the content model I'd probably use less than all the models you
 listed in comment #8, no object for a start. Maybe just start small, I'd
 probably allow p (although it's not inline) because otherwise it's hard to
 make long comments without falling back on blank line syntaxes, and then
 perhaps just b i br lists and a.
