I would not recommend mixing TeX and SGML.

One can go this way:


   Next is math

   This is other text
   This is other text 

or this way, which is equivalent XML:

    Next is math
    <par>This is other text<brk>
     This is other text

There are extant authoring systems for MathML some of which support
these approaches.  See
(plus several new ones not listed there: Hermes, LaTeXML -- both of
which have links at
converting-tex.htm ['\' used for line continuation] -- and blahtex,
maybe others.
