Another option is:

<p>The displacements of the membrane
under load are described by the equations
<line>
<math>
[two fancy math expressions were here]
</math>
where r is the radial coordinate, a is the
radius of the clamping edge, w is the
transverse...</line></p>

Well, actually the code example provided seems to suggest that a break
is desired _before_ the math element, but _not after it_. For that to
work a "line" element before the "math" element seems to be the only
solution (absent "br").
