Why should we write \sqrt{2}, while we could have √2? Instead of a monstrosity in (La)TeX syntax, like

f(x) = \int_{-\infty}^\infty
    \hat f(\xi)\,e^{2 \pi i \xi x}

wouldn’t it be lovely, if we could just type something along the lines of

f(x) = int{-inf inf} ^f(xi), e^{2 pi i xi x}, d xi

and have our editor convert that keyboard input, as we type, into a readable Unicode string

𝑓(𝑥) = −∞∫∞ 𝑓̂(ξ) 𝑒⁽2πiξx⁾ 𝑑ξ

which would be output on the client:

𝑓(𝑥) = ∫−∞ 𝑓̂(ξ) 𝑒2πiξx 𝑑ξ
