Thanks Paul,

It's good to know someone complained.  It's seriously sloppy response 
from them though given how important a feature MathML is. I will post on 
the thread as well.  Probably won't make any difference but at least if 
a few people complain it's better than nothing.

For now about the only way I can go if they do stop supporting MathML in 
later version of chrome is to use MathJax.  I did a few experiments with 
it, and for what I need I can put up with it's limitations.  But it is 
at best only a temporary solution.

Thanks :)
