All I want is to be able to have a mathml section rendered both as the 
mathematical formula it represents and on the same page rendered in the 
InputControl applet.
This surely can be done using special XSLT transformations but I don't 
think that I'm the first or the last person that meets this problem, so 
what I'm looking for is a
previously implemented and tested method (or xsl file) that I can use.

Actually I expect Design Science to have such a mechanism...
