YES, but it's clearly marked as "closed". I didn't know that
(x^2+1)::DMP([x],INT) didn't work once upon a time, but #5977 says that
x^2+1::DMP([x],INT) doesn't work. PLEASE reopen it! (I don't have permission on

It seems so: Bill installed IssueTracker on MathAction, which might serve as a

at the top left in MathAction.


PS: I have a slight problem presenting the CAISS logo on the "new" FrontPage at

I'm not a web "designer". As soon as we have at least three sponsors, this
