What I suggested would require the user to *generate* correct
XHTML+MathML with suitable hooks for slidy, but I would never
recommend that an author undertake direct editing of raw xhtml+mathl.
I might have mentioned that there's a development-level
xhtml+mathml+slidy formatter for use with gellmu that may be found at
http://www.albany.edu/~hammond/gellmu/.  (The diffs from the standard
xhtml+mathml formatter [11400 lines of perl] amount to only 55 lines.)
