When the <equation-number> element has empty or whitespace-only content, the equation number SHOULD be generated. When the <equation-number> element has non-whitespace-only content the content SHOULD be used as the equation number. For explicit numbers the content of the element SHOULD be the number value without any surrounding punctuation, for example, "3.2a" rather than "(3.2a)". Processors SHOULD add punctuation or decoration to the number as appropriate.
In normal usage a block equation will have at most one number. However, <equation-number> can occur multiple times within <equation-block>, for example, to allow numbers with different (and exclusive) conditional properties.
The details of equation numbering and number presentation are processor-specific. However, common practice is to present the equation number to the right of the equation, centered vertically within the vertical extent of the block equation.

An equation with a generated number:
<p>A block equation using an image:</p> <equation-block id="eq-001"> <equation-number/> <image keyref="equation-image-01"> <alt>a squared plus b squared.</alt> </image> </equation-block>
An equation with an explicit number:
<p>A block equation using an image:</p> <equation-block id="eq-3.2a"> <equation-number>3.2a</equation-number> <image keyref="equation-image-01"> <alt>a squared plus b squared.</alt> </image> </equation-block>
