EdiTeX is a MathML editor based on TeX syntax. It means that it allows the user to create a MathML document by typing the TeX markup as he or she would do in a normal text editor. The TeX markup is parsed as the user types, an internal structured model of the typed text is built and from there an XSLT stylesheet generates the corresponding MathML.

The main idea behind EdiTeX is to combine in a single tool a TeX-to-MathML converter and a WYSIWYG editor for math expressions. This way the experienced user is not forced to use menus and palettes and can take advantage of using a syntax that he or she is already familiar with. Moreover, by using XSLT, the user is free to define his/her own macros (even at a more semantic level) and to provide separately (in a resource that is not hard-coded into the editor) a suitable presentation for them.
