OK, the representation of matehmatical formulae is not something I have 
ever worked with. But it is a problem we here, at the University of the 
West Indies, will shortly be facing at some point in the future. So lets 
work something out...

I would suggest the thing to do would be to use MathML as the source 
format (embedded in whatever markup language you are using for source). 
During conversion to the intermediate format (currently document1.2 
eventually XHTML2) the MathML could be converted to SVG and embedded as 
an image. Forrest will then display the SVG as a graphic.

Am I on the right track here?
