There is a current discussion in the Mozilla MathML and Layout groups 
toward supporting MathML in plain HTML (as opposed to just XHTML). It is 
intended that this will happen in the framework of HTML5 being 
shepherded by the WHATWG (the Web Hypertext Application Technology 
Working Group). HTML5 is a down-to-earth alternative to XHTML in that it 
  alleviates the requirements of XML and thus is backward compatible 
with the whole wide web, and will therefore allow authors, among other 
things, to copy-paste <math>...</math> in their existing HTML documents, 
thereby greatly facilitating the implantation and adoption of MathML by 
individual users.
