A minor problem with the spread of Z is that it is designed as language to be written rather than as a language to be input into a computer. Thus Z users often have to learn a version of the LaTeX mathematical type-setting language. On the other hand it makes the expressions much shorter and clearer than using ASCII. There are a few resources for people who want an ASCII form of Z:
