Since we're working up to having colour font support added to OFF, can I 
request that we also use this cycle to get Microsoft's MATH table and 
math OTL features formally included? This technology has been available 
in OT fonts and RichEdit since 2007, and MS have been liberal in making 
their spec available to interested parties, but it would encourage tool 
makers and layout implementers to have the spec formally published at last.

Will Microsoft please consider submitting documentation of math font 
tables and features to the AHG at this time?

If stung by another man's bee, one must calculate the
extent of the injury, but also, if one swatted it in the
process, subtract the replacement value of the bee.
