I have a version of TtH in testing that outputs MathML from TeX. Problem
is in testing it, especially since there isn't even a standard for
embedding it in HTML.

Amaya has been my test-bed so far. However, its implementation is still
very partial. A major problem is with entities. There are so many of them.
This is a big mistake, I think, unless renderers are going to be able to
render them all, a practical subset will have to be settled on.

Any volunteers to provide me with rendering engines to test the output?
