A couple of others:

http://www.dcarlisle.demon.co.uk/mathmlcss

implements as much presentation and Content MathML as I could manage in
"pure" CSS2 with no javascript or xslt etc.

It requires quite full CSS support, especially attribute selectors and
so doesn't really work at present in IE or Mozilla but does work
reasonably well in Opera. (Where reasonably well here means the
mathematics is legible, not that it is typeset with any great
typographic merit, in distinct contrast to the jsMath stylesheet that
Robert mentioned, which really does aim to achieve TeX quality layout
within the browser.)


George Chavchanidze has a similar setup targeted at Opera's CSS support
but using an ad hoc markup language for mathematics rather than MathML:
