Very nice article Maarten! I remember that the baseline problem was  
brought up when we were first talking about using a (not necessarily  
`the') LaTeX Equation Editor to produce equations using LinkBack for  
Pages. I didn't realize that the reference being made in the inquiry  
here was also referring to that problem.

Good Luck,
