SVGMath has a special mode where it takes as input an fo file that
contains embedded MathML (inside fo:instream-foreign-object elements)
and returns an output file that contains fo:instream-foreign-object
elements that contain SVG renderings along with an appropriate
baseline shift attributes (on the foreign object element).
