I meant to restrict my claim to "text-like", rather than graphical,
subjects.  Chemical formulae can be handled by almost any system that
can handle mathematics; diagrams obviously require more.  The diagrams
that linguists may use again need some graphical presentation, but the
symbols referred to can (or should be able to) be accessed directly
from Unicode text.

Music, on the other hand, *seems* as if it should be easily expressed
in text form, but consider how complicated the LilyPond sheet music
source code is for a piece of classical music.

So I guess I have to withdraw my claim.
