Haven't tested it, it has some css to render the mathml in the remaining
cases (based largely on George's work for the mathml css profile draft
that we recently published) It depends a bit if IE implements those
bits of CSS....

 Having to explictly reference a script that has to make explict
assumptions about a fixed set of browsers that it knows about is
obviously not ideal, but probably in a situation like blogger the
options are rather more limited than in a situation where you have
direct control over the server. One reason for choosing blogger in my
case was to test mathml in that kind of environment, as I'd like to tell
people it was possible to post mathml pages without having to run your
own web server and tweak its configuration.
