Ah, of course, a key difference is:

Draft
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1 plus MathML 2.0 plus SVG 1.1//EN" 
"http://www.w3.org/2002/04/xhtml-math-svg/xhtml-math-svg-flat.dtd" [
<!ENTITY % MATHML.prefixed "INCLUDE" >
]> 

Published version:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">


I followed the link to the non-normative alternative and the markup
transformed into equations.
