It would be really nice if it was possible to directly copy MathML formulas into
the word processor component (and vice versa) and have it displayed as formula.
Maybe this should be an option to the 'Special insert...' menu item?
MathML copy and paste is usefull especially with Mathematica and other
scientific tools that support MathML.
It would be great if one could copy a formula from OpenOffice into Mathematica
to have it evaluated, etc...

Hello! It would be very good to add this feature. I'll explain why. Windows 7
has a very good program that can make formulas via hand input (sorry for my
english). It called Math Input Panel (MIP). It's very handy. This program send
formulas to programs with MathML support. After you create formula in MIP you
just press "insert" and formula is in your document. Unfortunatly, this isn't
work with OpenOffice Writer. And even with OOo Math. But it works with MSO 2007.
So it would be great to add MathML copy and paste support.
