One correction.  I should have said *alpha*, not beta.

It requires no other retrievals.  It actually appears to be a
self-extracting zip archive, so unpack it in the directory you want it
to live in.  When I unpacked it, I just double-cliked mozilla.exe and
it ran.

Not yet.  I put part of a test suite online with proper namespace
declarations and so on, so the tests do render.  But they are
technical and boring.  For what it's worth, its at

  http://www.webeq.com/~rminer/mmltests

I promised the Mozilla people I would try to create some further
documents to show off the MathML rendering, but I haven't done it yet.

It is a direct renderer.
