mglyph element provides a mechanism
for displaying images to represent non-standard symbols.
It may be used within the content of the token elements
where existing Unicode characters are not adequate.
Unicode defines a large number of characters used in mathematics and, in most cases, glyphs representing these characters are widely available in a variety of fonts. Although these characters should meet almost all users needs, MathML recognizes that mathematics is not static and that new characters and symbols are added when convenient. Characters that become well accepted will likely be eventually incorporated by the Unicode Consortium or other standards bodies, but that is often a lengthy process.
Note that the glyph's
src attribute uniquely identifies the
mglyphs with the same values for
be considered identical by applications that must determine whether
two characters/glyphs are identical.
mglyph element accepts the attributes listed in
Section 3.1.10 Mathematics style attributes common to presentation elements, but note that
mathcolor has no effect.
The background color,
mathbackground, should show through
if the specified image has transparency.
mglyph also accepts the additional attributes listed here.

it may be a URI relative to the base-URI of the source of the MathML, if any.
Examples of widely recognized image formats include GIF, JPEG and PNG; However,
it may be advisable to omit the extension from the
