### Abstract

Recently PDF has been accepted as a standard for production of electronic documents, as ISO 32000-1:2008, with an acronym of PDF/UA (for "Universal Accessibility"). The second draft ISO 32000-2:2009 is to include specifications for including MathML tagging of mathematical environments and expressions. This talk presents a report on work-inprogress, aimed at: (a) developing the primitive commands for pdfTEX needed to support the production of fully tagged PDF documents; (b) writing appropriate TEX and LATEX macros to make effective use of the new primitives; (c) authoring changes to internal LATEX structures to use these macros automatically at appropriate places within the existing code-base for LATEX. This is work that is being undertaken together with Hàn Thê Thành, author of pdfTEX [2], who has added some new primitive commands to an experimental version of this software tool.
