you should have a look at
http://www.uni-ulm.de/~richter/udiwww/index.htm
So far, udiwww is only available for MS-Windows and I don t
know if the source-code is available. 

I think that <math> and <fig> would be very widely used immediatly
after Netscape and MS-Explorer would be able to display it.
The Internet had once been a medium for akademic interchange.
<math>, <fig> and related HTML-elements would help it to stay in this
position. 
I don t see ANY reason to eliminate these HTML-features.
