It's C code, tightly integrated into the Gecko rendering engine.
I'd be surprised if anybody managed to make it accessible, short
of providing a JNI to Gecko as a HTML+MathML rendering widget.
Not that this would be useless, quite the contrary.

The MozMathML people plundered TeX for algorithms on how to render
equations. I think I've heard of a project providing a Java
interface to TeX (or even a Java port), which could render to GIF
among other things.
