Rendering of MathML islands (including m prefixed) in HTML 4 strict,
extension html, being served as text/html is proven in

[http://canonicalscience.blogspot.com/2006/10/mathml-in-html-4-and-5-and.html]

Messy proposal for 'MathML' (is ***NOT*** MathML) in HTML 5 can be avoided
in its most part since breaks compatibility with current standard, ignores
MathML in MSIE, and adds close to zero real funcionality to today
authoring.

Instead scary discussions about if <b> or <strong> would be supported
inside MathML islands or how <none> and <mrow> are strict HTML versions
(SGML syntax) of the XML 'cousins' or if entities would be called as &ac
instead &ac; or how m: and xmlns= are 'evil' for HTML5...

i would recommend a careful and serious study for the inclusion of the
above functionality let us rendering MathML into HTML 4 as _default_ for
next HTML 5.
