These apps are interesting. They certainly make things easier from the  
average math professional, who would probably know TeX. I am looking  
for the "DWIM" language for encoding mathematical expressions and I am  
not finding it. :-)

I often work things out in either sage or R and want to put the result  
into some web page. I have one way to do it that works. I take a  
partial screenshot and plug the PNG file into the page. Not optimal.

I learned HTML and such before learning math, and not the other way  
around. Additionally, tools that have been around tend to be for  
Windows. Do I want to learn TeX just to get MathML? That seems wrong.  
O well.

cheers - ray
