we are currently working on trying to improve this situation which
isn't helped by the fact that acknowledged bugs in IE6's XML parser mean
that it can not read the MathML DTD.
re

Currently the most portable  solution is _not_ to specify a DTD via the
<!DOCTYPE declaration and instead use numeric character references
&#913; for an alpha for example. The bycodes.html file in the MathML
distribution will show the required numbers.

We are currently working on an updated version of the DTD that will
hopefully manage to work round some of these known "features" in
existing systems but it isn't quite ready for public announcement yet.

David
