    Good day.

      Impossibility to write commonly used formulas with root and fraction _in textual_ file looks poorly, archaically too.
    But symbols 'root' and 'fraction' exist! Why nobody guess to interprete them as control symbol.
      Let's agree to display expression "(a+b+c)\(d+e)" as


    and expression "a#(b+c)" (where # is mark of root) as

    a ___

    At least, it's possible to add two new symbols with mentioned funtionality.
