   What is the current state of Math formatting for HTML ?

There are one or two math-enabled browsers, notably IBM's own.

   What is the best available method of getting SGML tagged Math converted
   to a form that can be incorporated into an HTML page ?

There is not a lot of congruence between (for example) 12083 and HTML
math, so I think this is not easy. Right now your safest way is push
it through TeX and make GIFs.

I included HTML3 math with one or two small cleanups to content models
in HTML Pro, but I noted that the jury was still out on math, and I'm
open to suggestions. I hope to be discussing it with people at SGML'96.
