Dear 黄晓帆:
MathML is a language based on XML. And in XML, element name and id in 
general can use any Unicode letters (not puncutation) for identifier. 
Therefore, in general, you can use Chinese in MathML. Your question is hard 
to answer because it is too general. I can give you better answer if your 
question is specific enough. 

About what kind of Chinese characters can be used in XML and some example, 
please see "Use CSS and XML for International

Eighteenth International Unicode Conference
for details. 

As in MathML, I don't have specific research about the impact yet. However, 
I love to work with you to identify potential issues. Thanks. How about you 
scan some Chinese Math material into image and share with us. And ask in 
particular which area you don't know how to do it. In this way, it is easier 
to communicate.
