I find MathML tedious to code by hand, and hard to read too for
nontrivial formulas. I have a setup that allows me to code all my
math in LaTeX syntax, and a Makefile setup that uses an external Perl
script and Ian Hutchinson's TTM to convert inlined LaTeX code to
external MathML files that are then XIncluded. This allows me to
handcode math conveniently in LaTeX (which is processed directly by
PassiveTeX until there is a FO processor that can render MathML), and
convert it to MathML for the Web.
This gets me the best of both worlds: Easy coding and reading in
LaTeX, and Web math in MathML without cluttering up my (validated) XML
source files.
