We are looking for a method for students to input their mathematics questions in
such a way that we interpret the problems in the exact way the student intends
for us to interpret them. Yours is a very useful tool and I have added it to my
favorites. You are correct when you state the examples explain themselves.
There were some options which I had to experiment with in order to determine
what they did such as vertical alignment pulldown menu but it was fun to
learn some Italian. I am very impressed with your work. Thank you.
