@mschneider thank you. . I did use Maple to generate MML but had not thought of doing Latex. That might be cleaner. Much appreciated.

Integer to float conversion - prevention
Is there some way to prevent Mobius from changing all numbers to floats? I know I can make them strings like $function=x^"2"-"1"; but then if I wish to do something with $function even as simple as $secondfunction=$function; the integers get clobbered anyway and I get $secondfunction being x^2.0-1.0. I find this an annoying issue since when you typeset using mathml() you get a power of 2.0. There are even some weird problems with comparing the integer version to a float version in some cases in the $answer-$response comparison. However my immediate task is that I am trying to pick from a list of different functions and while I can think of a couple of ways to get around this, the best solution would be if Mobius left integers as integers so I am hoping there is some way to do that.
Any help (or changes to Mobius) will be greatly appreciated.
Live 3D plots
This may have been asked elsewhere or in documentation so I apologize if it is a dumb question. I would like to have a 3D plot (using plot3d() or otherwise) in a Mobius question which allows the student to move the plot to view it from different perspectives. Essentially what Maple does using plot3d(). It would appear the basic plotmaple() has not way to do this but is there some obvious method I am missing? All suggestions welcome.
